Another successful bundle of Book Club has just been concluded. My students loved listening to Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle written by Betty MacDonald. Written in 1947, this story has been enjoyed by both children and adults. Children love Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle because she understands them and grownups love Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle because her magical solutions to children's problems always succeed. Betty MacDonald has written two sequels to Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, which your children might enjoy during the summer.
In Book Club, the students learn, practice, and cultivate key literacy skills that are then used in their classrooms at school and in daily homework assignments. Your children will also learn the trajectory of a story, recalling information, making predictions and inferences, point of view of the narrator, detecting literary themes, and making self-to-text and text-to-text connections. Most of all, during our zoom Book Club sessions the students have a wonderful time conversing with one another and developing new friendships while delighting in the joys of a new book. Book Club does not require any reading on the part of the student and is conducted solely through zoom.
I look forward to seeing your children for the next bundle of Book Club, which will be held over the course of five Monday evenings from 6:00-7:00pm: May 23rd, May 30th, June 6th, June 13th, and June 20th. To sign your child up for Book Club, please use the following link:
