Stoy Bingo 
   "Story BINGO" follows the typical format of BINGO we all know.  Each student will be given a blank BINGO grid with a free middle space.  To fill in the rest of the spaces, follow these steps.  First, the teacher has the students call out parts of a story; characters, setting, events, favorite parts, least favorite parts, title, author, illustrator, problems, solutions.  In other words, anything associated with the book (but make sure you have at least 24 so each square will be accounted for).  From this huge list that was compiled, have students fill in their BINGO cards with the responses on the board.  (Remind students to put the responses anywhere on their card - not to go from upper-left corner to the square next to it - that makes for more variety between cards.)  While students are filling out their cards, write the responses on index cards, fold in half, and place in a jar, hat, bucket, or anything else to choose from.
    Then, play BINGO!  (You can always rephrase the letters above the columns according to the book.  For example, make "HOLES," for the book Holes, by Louis Sachar or "POLEX" for The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg.
