The WJMS Book club met this afternoon from 3:45 until 4:30 in the media center. Deliberating on several options (The Page Turners, Rowdy Readers, On the Same Page, Novel Noters, etc.), the 30 students in attendance decided to call this group the Book Worms. We discussed the book club contract and how the club would operate during the year. Not only will we meet as a group to discuss the books, students will be able to use this blog as a forum for discussion. This will be especially helpful for those unable to attend due to scheduling conflicts. I talked about two books; one of which will be chosen as our first book. I began with Susan Beth Pfeffer’s Life As We Knew It by giving the kids a summary, showing them the book trailer, and reading a short passage. They were enjoying the reading so much, you could have heard a pin drop in the room and they were disappointed that I stopped. The group is really going to like that one. The other option was Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix. The students left the meeting asking when were the books going to be delivered. I have a wonderful group of kids to work with and it looks like the book club is off to a good start.
