4th & 5th Grade Book Club

What happens at Book Club meetings?

At the October meeting, we vote on the books that we will read during the coming year. At the end of the hour, you will receive your own copy to keep of the book that we will be discussing the following month.

At the rest of our meetings, we'll have a fun discussion of the book that we have read, and snacks to enjoy while talking. Towards the end of the hour, there will be an activity of some kind that is related to the book: a game, a craft, or a challenge!

At one of our meetings in the spring, there will be a Skype visit with the author of the book we are reading -- for Book Club members only!
