  • Recommended for: Grades 5-8 libraries and ELA classrooms
  • Formats: PowerPoint, PDF, and Google Slides
  • Editable: YES
  • You will also need: printer paper or cardstock (white or rainbow colors)

  • Two sets of six cards (1 color; 1 black and white for easy printing on colored paper).
  • Three editable formats: PPT, Google Slides, and PDF
  • Pre-filled Reading Bingo squares. These include a wide variety of authors, genres, and book formats for Grades 5-8.
  • Detailed instructions with ideas for prizes when students complete a row or a card.


  • Start with the red Reading Bingo card. When a student finishes the red card, they “level up” to the next card (orange).
  • To complete a card, students select books from any one row (4 books). They can also read from the four corners. This means they have read four books.
  • Each card has 11 possible book row options, allowing every card to be differentiated to suit different reading preferences/abilities.
  • Students can complete more than one row on the same card if they choose. I like to just require one row or the four corners because I like the students to have many options to choose from.
  • Students get a small prize and/or recognition for completing a row or four corners on their card. I have listed some inexpensive and free ideas for prizes in the Reading Bingo card directions.
