Book Clubs

Reading Groups? 

 LOVE THEM!

BUT....
My High Kiddos 
don't want to meet with me
 as often as my others...
so...
BOOK CLUBS





We have grouped our kids into groups of six.
 Each has the same book.
They have worked with the packet with me first...
model, model, model. 
Then ...
RELEASE THE KRACKEN!




 I mean ...release the firsties!



They work as a team 
to help each other read the story,
 have a "LITERATURE" discussion ( the hard part),
 and then they complete the packet TOGETHER.






 Do they copy...yeah ( get over it) .
They ARE Learning from each other.
 I have heard the BEST discussions ever 
( and I wasn't involved in it!).

 They really CAN do it.
They enjoy the new packet.
 I give them a "reward certificate" 

LUNCH with the teacher 
when the TEAM completes their packets
 AND 
 give a 
GROUP ORAL REPORT 
on their book!

They want MORE!
 ( I try to switch the groups , depending on the book level).
It takes them about 1-2 weeks to complete it.

 We have a "core" reading series 
we HAVE TO DO are highly, most decidedly will, are
encouraged to do, first.

 SO..this is their UA (small group) time.
So here it is!  Check it out! Good for ANY story or book.
