Rainbow Reading Bingo K-2- Please continue to work with your child in finding and reading these books. Many students are forward-thinking and when they receive a new card after spinning the wheel, they find books in our library that match the boxes on the card. The public library is another source for books. You can search their card catalog by subject, author, or title.
