Bingo Activity FREEBIE/ Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee

Bingo FREEBIE Kidslit Activity via Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee

If you want to engage discussion about a book, it's fun to use a game instead of formal questions. Why not create a bingo game with people, places, and things from a story? That's exactly what I did for our homeschool book club for Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee. is awesome! So easy to use and you can create custom bingo cards from your own word lists. All these bingo cards were created at for FREE!

To make the cards and calling sheet easy to reuse, simply slide them in a plastic sleeve. Students make a line through the word as it is called with a dry erase marker. If you have access to a laminator, you could also laminate the bingo cards instead.

As each word is called, use the opportunity to ask students about their comprehension. If an item is called, who does it belong to or why is it important? Ask students to describe character personality traits or for important events central to that character. Everyone loves chiming in with details - so enjoy!
