Reading Counts BINGO
    We recently completed a Reading Counts project extending our learning about authors included in our Reading Wonders Literature Anthology, to enrich our Wonders Unit 1 and Unit 2 textbook units. We stepped outside our comfort zones, exploring authors and genre we might not ordinarily have selected. 

    We were challenged to fill a BINGO board with 5 fiction selections, recording our Reading Counts quiz success. … but we weren’t quite done…

    Opening a Word document template created by Mrs. Dingman, we typed our selected title information and Reading Counts quiz success dates in the row, column, or diagonal we selected on each of our BINGO boards. We practiced using the Underline tool button, correctly underlining our selected titles. And, we practiced shading each of the 5 cells in our BINGO boards, highlighting the row, column, or diagonal we chose. 

    We were all Reading Wonders Authors Reading Counts BINGO winners! Mrs. Dingman was proud to display our BINGO board creations on our hallway bulletin board.

This integrated Reading & Technology project met with the following
