Freebie Friday Party: Free Printable Book BINGO Template
I am always searching for ways to make reading more interesting, more exciting, more fun, more engaging for my kids. My youngest two are amazing readers – great comprehension and fluency, reading way above grade level, and, despite their protests, they do actually like to read. My oldest has dyslexia which makes sight reading a challenge, but he loves to ear read audiobooks. In fact, he asked for The Hunger Games audiobook for Christmas. As a mom of a child who has struggled for years with reading, to have him actually ask for and be excited by books…it’s humbling.
So, before I get too emotional at the thought of him reading, let me share with you this fun Book BINGO game that we’re doing starting in January. Each box has a specific reading requirement. When a book that meets that criteria has been read, the box can be checked off (or have a star placed in it). Easy peasy, right?
There are three different levels of prizes based on the books read. There’s the traditional five in a row BINGO prize, the perimeter prize (sneaking math in for the homeschool mom win!), and the complete board prize. The lowest level prize is a trip to the bookstore to pick out a new book and have cocoa with Mom or Dad. The second level prize gets them a “stay-up-late and watch the movie based on one of your books” ticket. And the grand prize is a $10 Amazon gift card that they can spend as they wish. You can adjust the prizes as needed to motivate your learners, but this works for us since our kiddos are older.
Simply print out the Reading BINGO page below (print on card stock to make it sturdier) and get reading in 2015! Have fun (and be sure to check out the other freebies listed below)!
