Upcoming book club:
The next book club will be a student choice. Each student can choose any book he or she would like to read and create a project to share with the group. There are no expectations for the project, but some examples are shoebox presentation, character mobiles, Powerpoint presentations, posters, book report, etc. Be creative and have fun! This will be the last book club of the year and the date will be Thursday May 26th. You can pick your child up outside my room or come into the building (room 14). The pick up time will be 4:00. We have had some wonderful book clubs this year and I am sad to say this will be the last.
