The Read It, Talk It Book Club
Advisors/Faciliators- Julie Brenner and Cathie Strawn
The "Read It, Talk It Book Club" is a student-directed, teacher guided after-school book club for fifth and sixth grade students. We discuss literature and make connections to other texts and to real life.
Our next book club discussion will center around Lois Lowry's The Giver, the first novel in a four novel series. Join us to dig deep into this thought-provoking, beautifully written novel on Tuesday, March 19th. See Mrs. Strawn to borrow a copy of the novel, go to your local library, or purchase the book online. All students are welcome. If you have a copy of the book, bring it with you so that we can read directly from the book. As you read, place a post-it note anywhere you find something you want to share with our group.
Our final book club discussion for this school year will be held on Tuesday, May 14. Join us as we discuss George Orwell's Animal Farm, a novel that one of our students suggested after we spent well over our alloted hour yesterday talking, "digging", and sharing our thoughts about The Giver.
We will meet in Ms. Brenner's room, C-7. Flyers/permission slips are available in the Media Center (see Mrs. Strawn) and in each Language Arts teacher's classroom.
Arrive hungry as we always have homemade treats.
