Virtual Book Club for Grades 4 – 6
October 4, 2018 @ 9:30 am - April 4, 2019 @ 9:30 am| $50
Please note, there will be two-time options, either 9:00 am or 10:00 am.
Each book will be read in 4-5 weeks dependent upon the size of the novel. Then there will be two weeks off in between. We have our meetings in Zoom each week, and this has been really successful as everyone is visible and heard well.
Students thrive in the structured environment with certain roles that they come prepared to play. They gain amazing oral presentation skills, confidence, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and my favourites, blogging experience and creative assignments throughout the year. I have seen students really flourish in their abilities and the community created is so much fun.
At this point, here are the books that we will be doing for next year:
- The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis
- Holes, by Louis Sachar
- Mrs. Frisby and The Rats of Nimh, by Robert C. O’Brien
- The Unwanted, by Lisa McMann
I am reserving the option to change one novel choice if I come across another fantastic book that I believe the students will love even more than those listed.
