One-On-One Reading Fluency: Guided Reading!

The Amulet Series Book Club: Books 1 & 2

Class
Amy Marson
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(127)
In this social reading bookclub, the sharing of emotions, logic, thinking, and art will build even the most reluctant reader's communication and confidence while discussing this fantasy action-packed graphic novel series.

Class experience

Being introduced to the series from my own son who "hated reading", I dove into the series myself, loved them (even as an adult), and thus introduced them to kids. As a previous elementary school librarian, this was a series that couldn't stay on my shelves! Which led me to meet and hear from the author, Kazu Kibuishi who gave me further insight into his passionate work. Even though the books are graphic novels, in-depth themes, character development, and quest-like plots contribute to the worthiness of these books as fiction gold medals.

As a librarian, much of my day was finding the perfect book for each child. For some, the love of reading doesn't come naturally, so through relationships, intuition, and extensive personal reading of kids' literature, I found each kiddo's gem of a book. It was and continues to be my passion--to inspire the love of reading.

2 Books: Stonekeeper: Amulet Book 1 and The Stonekeeper's Curse: Amulet Book 2 by Kazu Kibuishi
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Kahoot!
Per Common Sense Media
"Parents need to know that The Stonekeeper is the first book in the Amulet series of fantasy graphic novels. Its prologue features the death of a parent, which might upset some younger readers. A parent is swallowed by a grotesque tentacled monster. Another older character dies later on. Children are in jeopardy throughout, but they are aided by a number of sympathetic helpers. There is no objectionable sex, language, or substance abuse content."

The death of the parent is not a lingering theme to the 1st book or the series. However, I am a widow, and my children were young when they lost a parent so I can empathize with children. If need be, I will alert parents of any concerns and/or be available outside of class to continue any sensitive discussion.
