Really great series for book clubs with girls and boys.
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor is the author of the classic SHILOH, which we loved as a book club. (You can see our book club ideas for SHILOH HERE.)
This month our book club has taken a new format.
I was asked to hold my book club at newly opening charter school in our community.
So we are going to try this out.
I don't know how many kids are going to show up. But I am expecting a mixed crowd- of boys and girls- as well as a range of reading levels.
We are going to meet every Thursday for an hour.
I plan we will read the book out-loud. (round robin format) and then work on an activity.
I picked this story: from the series, because the story has a mystery/but also about working on a newspaper together. I thought that would be a fun activity our group can work on together as well. (so a little something for everyone.)
