    I'm putting together bingo boards for summer reading, and have to come up with numerous ways, things and places to read for grades 2-8. Some of them include:

    Read under a tree
    Read a menu
    Read a funny book
    Etc

    Can you suggest some others, for all grade levels? I'm drawing a blank!!

    Thank you!

    Read to a pet
    Read to a parent
    Read to a neighbor
    Read in your pajamas
    Read while eating a popsicle
    Re-read an old favorite of yours
    Read a cereal box
    Read a book your teacher read aloud

    I might steal your bingo idea!

    Thanks for the ideas!

    How it works is, each grade level gets their own board filled with different reading "suggestions". When they've done the suggestion, they initial it. In the fall, they return their board to school, and get a prize (everyone gets a prize). Parents know and "oversee" it, so the kids can't cheat ;)

    Teachers who have specific books they want the kids to read over the summer let me know of those titles (The Giver, Treasure Island, etc) and those get placed on the proper grade level board. It's a great hit!

    It's my first year here...the librarian from last year didn't leave me last year's boards/ideas, so I'm starting from scratch!!
