I’ve been thinking about how teachers are using nonfiction books so much more, thanks to the Common Core. How could I as a librarian help them with this? By playing bingo, of course!
I used the website freebingomaker.com to make this, and had to really think to come up with 25 different words to use – some are a stretch, I know! (Roman Numerals? Family tree?) I love the center block on all of them – “Really cool fact!” I plan on playing this with second graders while we read a nonfiction book from Mackin Via on the projector, and with fourth graders, have them grab a nonfiction book from some good choices I’ve picked out for them.
(I should say, this definitely wasn’t my idea – I saw some Nonfiction Bingo cards going around Pinterest, too. Follow me there!)
