Book club activity pack for Cam Jansen The Mystery at the Monkey House by David A. Adler
Book Club activity packets are designed to use in a guided reading or book club setting with the students having an additional assignment to complete on their own each week.
Set up: The first week, I have students make reading journals with blank paper and a construction paper cover. I then give them Week one’s papers to have them glue into their reading journals. I only give the students one week at a time to help them stay focused on the current assignment. You could also just make a booklet with the copied pages and provide your students with all the papers they need at one time.
I read the first part with my students and we complete the ‘After Reading’ page together or with support. Since I meet with each group once a week, the students have a week to complete part 2 as homework. You could also have the students meet together without the teacher and complete part 2 together. This would make so you didn’t have to assign homework and have the students take the books home.
At the end of the book, students choose an assignment from the choices given to complete their book study. I have a chart that I use that includes several different choices for students to show their understanding of the book. The chart, titled Not Another Book Report, is available for free on my TPT Store.
