Reading Bingo for Literacy!

R-E-A-D-O is like Bingo, but for reading. Everytime a student reads something according to the squares, they write the title and date in the square on the forms that were sent home with students.       The goal is to add some fun and encourage reading for students in a wide variety of forms.   
* This game is open all year, until the library closes in June 2017.
*When the student fills up the whole board, they can bring it to Librarian, Ms. McCandless and trade it in for a prize.
*Each thing read counts as only one square. 
Read 4 Poems              Read a Book with a Female Lead           Read to a friend or Sibling
Read a Magazine               Read a non-fiction book                  Read someone a bedtime Story  
              Read a store Flyer         Read a book about a special event or holiday 
*Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunties, Uncles, Godparents, Babysitters, Family Friends, Moms, Dads, Cousins....all count as adults to share reading with.
*Keep the READO form in a safe place (eg. agenda pocket) or in a special spot at home. If the child loses the form, they will have to start all over again! (yay more reading!)
Happy Reading!
