This program is designed to support literacy and language development for children who live in Florida, have hearing loss, are ages birth through 15, and who are learning to listen and speak or whose primary communication mode is listening and spoken language. Siblings can participate as well to encourage a family-wide culture of reading.

At the start of the program, you will receive an email with a summer reading BINGO card featuring fun, age appropriate reading challenges. For younger children, adults or siblings will read aloud or practice implementing the strategies for all of the challenges. Older children will be able to read on their own for most challenges, but being read to still offers tremendous benefits for all ages!
You can earn prizes by completing BINGOs on your card! Each time you complete a BINGOs - 5 challenges in a row, column, or diagonal on your card - you earn a new or gently used book in the mail! (Maximum one prize per child per week). You'll email TFisk@DeafKidsCan.org with a photo of your card to let us know that you've completed a BINGO! - We'd also love for you to share photos of completing challenges, but those are not required for entries.
At the end of the summer, we'll have Grand Prize drawings and you will get an entry for each BINGO you completed during the summer. (Max 8 entries per family).
Each week, parents will also receive an email with language and literacy tips, book recommendations, and resources for you and your children.
Please add TFisk@DeafKidsCan.org to your email contacts so emails come to your inbox. Emails frequently go to junk mail because they have resource links and attachments and go to many people at once. We don't want you to miss out on prizes!
