Are you ready for an amazing year of reading? Virtual Book Clubs (all book clubbers and I will meet via an online classroom using the program Zoom which I send a link for each month. They can do this book club wherever their computer is in their own home) are changing this year into more of a Literature Circle Model, which is exciting as I will be able to connect more with students on a book for more than just one hour.
We will be meeting on a bi-weekly basis online for 4 times on each book. Our meetings online will consist of lots of discussion including inquiry-guided questions and also each student will have their own job assignment to share. It will be essential for students to attend each session (as much as is possible) as their job will be super important to the group. We will also continue with the blogging on Kidblog, which has been super successful. Our book list will include 4 great novels over the year. We read 8 last year and met for 8 times and this year we will read 4 novels and meet 16 times. Soooo much fun! Students have often asked me if we could meet more often and now this will happen. More meaningful discussions, great critical thinking, and building a stronger community of students who love to read! Sounds like a wonderful year to me! Please join in!
