I am piloting a "Summer Reading Bingo" game this year, with boards for
grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8, to encourage diverse reading. Each square names a
genre of fiction or subject focus of nonfiction, or a descriptor such as
"takes place in another country," "award-winner," etc. I'm trying to come
up with an incentive for completing the challenge (reading 5 in a row) and
for reading multiple rows, or the entire board.
For those of you also doing something like this, what incentive(s) do you
offer that feel cost effective, not too hard on non-participating students,
and age-appropriate? Thank you for sharing! (And yes, I really should have
worked this out a month ago! Where did May go?) :D
