Books clubs are a fun way for kids to get a deeper understanding of a book and learn to have a discussion with other readers. The lesson plan will help you get started and a planning sheet for the students will help students stay focused and engaged.
Included in this pack is:
*Lesson plan on how to get the book clubs set
up and running.
*Planning sheet that the kids use to help
guide them through an INDEPENDENT book club
*A page to record thick questions that will be
asked at the next book club meeting.
*Thick question cards.
*Make it yourself Book Club Rule Booklet with
directions on how to make the booklets with
your kids...or have a parent help you make
them! These can also be cut apart and made
into flip booklets.
*Links to the Thick and Thin Questions poster
from Beth Newingham's wonderful website.
*Poster and/or cards with questions to ask
yourself before, during, and after reading.
*Self-Evaluation page for kids to reflect on
their book club experience.
*Teacher Grading Rubric
