There’s nothing like a visual to spur some friendly competition! Create a poster with a unique twist alongside your child where they can track the books they are reading – instead of just tracking the number of books read, gamify by the type of book! For example, create a “BINGO” poster with each square representing a specific genre, a notable topic, or a particular author. This may encourage your child to read a “history” book, and then a book that incorporates themes of “mythology,” followed by a book by author Beverly Cleary.
Better yet, encourage the whole family to participate! Mom, dad, siblings, or anyone in the house can create their own boards, and whoever gets to “BINGO” first, wins! Level up this challenge by suggesting family members provide suggestions for categories on each other’s boards.
