I would like to start a book club during lunch recess. I'd love to hear your
ideas on how you have done book clubs. Any suggestions would be great.
Thanks

I did my first one with 6 fifth grade girls last month! We met every Monday and Wednesday for lunch. We decided how far we were going to read each time to stay on track. Each girl had to bring their favorite part, a question, a prediction, and note any words they were unsure of.

I LOVED IT!!!! I was scared some wouldn't read, etc, but they did and the high level thinking and discussion going on was amazing!

We read Ninth Ward, by Jewell Parker Rhodes .

I hope to do one with a group of boys soon with My Life as a Book, by Janet Tashjian!

I did feel we drug the book out a bit. They probably would have finished sooner if they were reading on their own.
