Summer Book Clubs at WMS!
Getting Started...May: Participating teachers selected one or two books to share over the summer. This task was not an easy one for me. I have so many books that I love to share with students. Only choosing two?? Impossible!
June: Students were given the option to use our traditional method of discussing their books online in our forum OR they could try something new and join one of the book clubs. Two sessions were created (one in July and one in August) to allow for more choices and flexibility. They could attend both or just one!
Ready, Set, READ....July: Our first session was held! Each book was assigned a classroom for the students and teachers to discuss their reading and participate in activities. In both July and August, I created a bonus session to allow more options for the students AND to allow me the chance to do two books on each date.
July Bonus Session: Students came in early to discuss Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. (Also check out Dennard's first trilogy Something Strange and Deadly. Newly released covers are now available here!)
