Description

Class Experience

Students will work on reading comprehension skills as well as making predictions, inferences, and connections. 
Students will interact verbally and through written response with the text. 
Students will practice oral skills to communicate with other learners in the class. 
I believe in sharing the joy of reading and love to help cultivate that in young readers. Reading is the foundation for all learning and I use my experience as a licensed PK -6 teacher, with a Master's in Reading, to develop reading skills during our book club.  I have worked both in the classroom and the library setting and reading is truly a passion of mine. My goal is to create a positive and upbeat book club that will have your child excited about reading and coming each week to participate.

 My work as an elementary school librarian allows me to draw on a variety of literacy activities to help make an impactful reading experience for your child. This series has been a best seller and adored by many children in elementary school! Chris Colfer has woven together an unforgettable story your child is sure to love. As my reviews will say, I definitely have an animated and enthusiastic reading style to make the story engaging, upbeat, and a lot of fun!
Prior to starting our book club, please have your child read the Prologue at the beginning of the book. 

After each meeting, your child will be responsible for reading between 120 - 150 pages during the course of the week to be prepared for the next meeting.

Aside from the reading, there will be no additional assignments unless you would like your child to complete the optional class challenge. Teacher will post the weekly challenge after each meeting for parents looking to supplement their child's book club experience during the days we do not meet. 

- a copy of The Land of Stories, hardcopy or digital copy

- pencil and paper

Teacher will provide any additional handouts or papers needed for the class. Papers may include a response sheet, questions, or any other activity that will help with our book club. 
Please note: Any paper needed for a meeting will be sent no later than 24 hours before the start of the meeting. If you have access to a printer, please print for your child and bring to class. If you do not have access to a printer, your child can still respond using plain paper.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
As a parent, teacher, and librarian, I always recommend parents preview any book their child is going to read. This book does contain witches and other fantasy elements. Please check to ensure the book is appropriate for your child.
