Inside: Get kids reading with this fun printable book bingo activity for children and families.
This game of book bingo is a great way to get kids reading a variety of books and text types. It’s available as a free printable for teachers and families (download and printing instructions below) and makes a great reading challenge for home or school. We’re even sharing places to find books and other reading materials online to complete your book bingo board.
But don’t worry if your child does not yet read aloud independently, or is a very early reader, you can always use the Book Bingo grid as a family read aloud challenge.
Looking for great books for your kids? Find picture books suggestions in our Best Books for Kids collection and chapter book suggestions in the Best Chapter books for Kids of All Ages set.
Where to find books for your Book Bingo challenge;
• Rediscover the titles in your home library.
• Check out our online book collections – Online Books for Kids and Online Books for Tweens & Teens.
• For the poetry prompt, try reading some of the children’s poems shared at poetryfoundation.org. My children are particularly fond of poems that contain an element of humour.
• If you cannot access the library and you’re on the lookout for picture books, you can also check out Youtube as there are lots of channels offering read aloud time for a wide range of picture books.
Which column or row will you fill first? Can you fill an entire line diagonally? Can you fill the entire grid?!
