Summer Reading Bingo – Free Printable

Reading over the summer is immensely important. Have you heard about the summer slide? Read this research by Oxford that shows that kids will lose two months of reading skills during the summer holidays. We know that’s a lot but the good news is that summer slide is preventable with our amazing Summer Reading Bingo.

Our Summer Reading Bingo will encourage students or your children to read every day. They will love finding different places to read and hopefully, grow to love books even more!
