You know what’s crazy about Bingo? Everybody loves it.
When I was teaching–preschoolers, 2nd graders, middle schoolers–honestly, it didn’t matter. Bring out a Bingo game board, and those kids were all over it.
Yep, you’d be surprised what kids will learn to fill out a Bingo card. So it’s no surprise to me that adults (who played a ton of Bingo in their day) will get sucked into playing the Reading Bingo Challenge. And when I say “adults”, I’m using the term loosely since I’m counting myself.
When I found this fun game over at Retreat for Random House, I thought of you, too. I realize that most writers would read anytime, anywhere, anyway. But this just adds a whole ‘nother level of excitement to reading. Because hey! Who doesn’t love Bingo?
Cathy–I am almost at the end of “Gone Girl.” I heard there’s something disappointing about it. I’m figuring the ending?
I think my third graders might enjoy this version of Bingo.
It was a wild ride, GONE GIRL, but I wouldn’t say disappointing, exactly. Maybe not quite what I was expecting…
(Yay for your third graders and their wonderful teacher!) 🙂
What fun. I need to check this out.
I know, Donna! I will if you will…:-)
A few years ago my friend’s mom came into town and she is a Bingo-a-holic, so we took her to the Wed. night game at the American Legion hall. It was a lot of older folks (yes, even older than me!) and they were CRAZY! One lady must’ve had 100 Bingo sheets (okay that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the drift). I didn’t win a thing because I couldn’t keep up with the seniors. lol
Oh, I know, Lisa! I went to a church Bingo long, long ago– I mean, I was 20-something–and couldn’t keep up!
