Join Our Book Clubs!

Trailblazers and Book Challenge Clubs

Two Book clubs for Just for Kids...

At Last...we have Book Clubs for Fourth and Fifth grade students!!! Here are the details about the Clubs:



The purpose of the book clubs is to encourage students to read the South Carolina Children Award Nominees as well as books from various genres and authors.


What is the difference and similarities between the Clubs?

· Both clubs are designed for students who like to read books from different genres and authors. Unlike adult book clubs, students are allowed to choose theme related books that they can share during their meeting and write reviews that may encourage other students to read and enjoy. Students of all reading levels can enjoy our Book Clubs.


What happens at the Club meetings?

  • Welcome (Procedures, Expectations)
  • Booktalks
  • Books from other formats (EBooks, Nooks, Audio books, Playaways)
  • Creativity: Wordles, Competition questions, Booktrailers, iPad Raps, etc
  • Author Skype
