Middle School Book Club! (Meets Once a Week)
Learners will read and discuss exciting, quality, and thought-provoking literature in this ongoing book club!
US Grade 5 - 8
In this ongoing book club learners will meet to discuss classic and contemporary books! Classics are those books that readers love to share, reread, and always remember. These books compel thinking, relating, and great discussions! Learners are encouraged to join the conversation but are not required. I strive to create a safe and relaxed space for my learners.

Please note sensitive material: In Anne of Green Gables, Anne mistook a bottle of currant wine for cordial, which led to Diana becoming hopelessly drunk. Anne of Green Gables includes themes related to racism, stereotypes, and inaccurate descriptions of Natives. This will be addressed by discussing that this is no longer acceptable or tolerated by most. Unfortunately, it was more accepted in the past due to ignorance and the wrong people being in positions of power or authority. In My Side of the Mountain: Hunters track and shoot deer near Sam's mountain home. Sam traps animals and butchers them for food and/or skins them for clothing or other necessities. Sam also catches fish and turtles to eat, and his trained falcon helps him catch small game (such as rabbits). All of this is described matter-of-factly, with no sentiment or gore, but learners might be upset by the deer killing and skinning. Learners will participate in a game of Kahoot each week at their leisure. The Kahoot! Link will be posted in the classroom each week. You do not need an account to play. 1. Learner will click the link. 2. Enter a nickname or name and press go! 3. Read questions and select the correct answer or answers and click submit. Have Fun! Please let me know if you have any further questions.
