The Book Worms met on Thursday, May 13th to discuss their last book of the year. The Name of This Book is Secret describes a box called “The Symphony of Smells” which contains vials filled with magical scents. I recreated the box for book club members with 17 different scents inside. Students were challenged to identify the smells including strawberry, baby powder, glue, vanilla extract, and pancake syrup. After identifying the correct scents, I brought out the pizza and cokes for our big feast. Next, students logged into the computers for an online chat to discuss our book. Before the group left, I asked for book suggestions and ways to improve the club for next year. I have enjoyed our first year of book club very much and am looking forward to continuing to read great books with students next year.
