Write On! – Week 30

Time Saving/No Prep/ Student-made BINGO boards Demonstrate how to make 2 lines down and 2 across, all the way to the edges. It doesn't really matter if the lines aren't perfectly. Just have them count their spaces to make sure they have nine. They choose their words to write in the nine spaces referring to your word wall. We play blackout Bingo until one student "wins". The prize is the privilege of reading all of their words to the class! Do it with letters, sounds, CVC words numbers.

Letter and sound fluency- timer for 1-2 minutes to get through the stack.
