We have just finished another bundle of Book Club during which my students loved listening to Mr. Popper’s Penguins written by Florence and Richard Atwater. Written in 1938, this book remains a laugh out loud classic for both children and teachers.
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 (please note that these sessions have been extended to one hour): March 28th, April 4th, April 11th, April 18th, and April 25th.
