Hey there! A Reading Bingo printable has been added to the Freebie Library.
Contents of the Reading Bingo Printable
The Reading Bingo printable is a great way to encourage your kids to read. Twenty-four squares provide unique reading challenges, such as “read while standing” or “read with a flashlight or “read to someone else.”
There is one free space in the center of the Bingo board and additional space at the bottom to record a name, goal, and prize.
Directions for the Reading Bingo Printable
- Go to the Freebie Library.
- Scroll to the Reading Freebies section and click on the Freebie: Reading Bingo picture. (It looks the same as the picture at the top of this post.)
- Print the Reading Bingo page. Then fill in the space for the name, goal, and prize.
- Cross off the squares as each challenge is completed. Try to get five squares in a row (diagonally, vertically, or horizontally). Then try to complete all the challenges on the page.
- A prize could be offered when completed.
