This is a year-long bingo board, one for reader's workshop and one for writer's workshop, for students to keep track of their progress in writing and reading across different genres. One set is included for a three-trimester school calendar, and one set is designed for a four-quarter calendar. Students take ownership and keep track of their own progress throughout the year. Perfect for teachers who want to introduce more choice in student writing and independent reading, and also great for planning and designing your writing instruction!
Give students these bingo boards early in the year as you are establishing expectations for workshop. Explain to students that while you will work through many of these tasks together, the boards will also help students decide what to work on when they have finished other assignments or need something to work on. Have students check in at least 1-2 times per quarter or trimester on their bingo board progress.
