LET'S PLAY SOME BINGO!!
Welcome to Semester 2!
All intermediate grades are playing a Library BINGO in an effort to stretch our reading muscles. Over the next week, each intermediate class will be instructed on using our card catalog, otherwise known as Destiny. There is a link to Destiny (a Follett website) on this page. If it doesn’t work, please type http:/bscs.follettdestiny.com and click on Blessed Sacrament School. This opens the card catalog. This week, we practiced entering something in the search bar and clicking on “keyword”, “title”, “author”, etc., as appropriate.
Each student should have 2 titles with call numbers when they come to library following their computer lesson. Please allow your student to play with this website at home so they will be prepared for library.
Any student who completes a simple BINGO will end up reading a total of 4 books if they use the Free Space; otherwise, they will read 5. The game ends on May 10. Time should not be an issue for the students. This is not in addition to any books required of them. They are choosing the books to read with just a little nudging in a specific direction.
Each student will receive a small prize at a BINGO, but if they want to complete a BLACKOUT, they will be able to attend the Accelerated Reader movie party at the end of the year.
I hope this is fun for our students as they learn to wander outside of the comfort zone where books are concerned. As always, please contact me with any questions.
