Book Club - Every other Wednesday after school
What a fun meeting!! We learned about who Nikola Tesla was and what he did for the world. We enjoyed cookies made by Mrs. Rivard and discussed the first by of the book.
For our next meeting on November 28th we will be finishing the book and discussing it!
Happy Halloween Everyone!! We had a hauntingly good meeting yesterday. We each wrote a short scary story and shared them. What great imaginations and writing! I was blown away!
For our next meeting on November 14th, we will be reading the first 13 chapters of Tesla's Attic by Neal Shusterman and Eric Elfman. Come by the library to get your copy today!!
What a great meeting, we discussed the book Eva by Peter Dickinson. It was a challenging book but a good one none the less. We also discussed the next meeting which will be on Halloween after school. We will not be reading a book for that meeting, instead, each of us will be writing a short scary story to share!
We also began the Book Club 2018-2019 notebook. In it we will each contribute to a story, writing a few pages and then passing it along to the next writer. This will create a great story that everyone contributed to. If you finish the story, Great! bring it back so that someone can start a new one!
Our second meeting we discussed Scar Island! What a great book! We also played Kahoot, if you missed it here is the quiz!
We also chose the next book that we will be discussing, Eva by Peter Dickinson. Pick up a copy in the library.
Further more we talked about our Halloween meeting! Yes we are meeting on Halloween! We are't reading anything in particular but we are writing! Join us for treats and fun and bring your own short scary story either written by you or found!
What a great first meeting! For those who were unable to attend don't worry. We discussed what book club will be like, what genres we liked and decided on a book that we are all going to read for our next meeting on October 3rd after school. We are going to read "Scar Island" by Dan Gemeinhart. If you would like to participate pick up a copy at the library and join us at our next meeting where we will discuss the book, and play games about the book.
**Fun side note: "Scar Island" is a MSBA so all of you who read it can fill out a slip and be one book closer to voting for your favorite book and a fun celebration!

Imagine if you moved and found a bunch of crazy things in the attic, what would you do?
