We are currently reading So B. It and will begin our Narrative Writing unit in the near future. 

 

 

Students work on Book Club daily. They will do the following: 

 

Monday: Groups will meet and decide what they will read for the week. There is a minimum of 100 pages per week. Groups will also chunk the pages into 4 equal sections so everyone knows what pages to read each day/night. Students will have about 15 minutes in class for Book Club on Mondays. Whatever is remaining after their group organizes themselves and figures out their week will be time to read from their "Monday" section. Any "Monday" reading they do not finish in class should be finished at home. They are also required to answer one question from their list of questions in a paragraph of 5 or more sentences. 

Tuesday: Students will get about 10 minutes to read independently in class. Any "Tuesday" reading they do not finish in class should be finished at home. They are also required to answer one question from their list of questions in a paragraph of 5 or more sentences. 

Wednesday: Students will get about 10 minutes to read independently in class. Any "Wednesday" reading they do not finish in class should be finished at home. They are also required to answer one question from their list of questions in a paragraph of 5 or more sentences. 

Thursday: Students will get about 10 minutes to read independently in class. Any "Thursday" reading they do not finish in class should be finished at home. They are also required to answer one question from their list of questions in a paragraph of 5 or more sentences. 

Friday: Students will meet with their groups again at the end of the week to discuss what they read. They will share their nightly responses as well as use the discussion questions in their notebook to guide their discussions. They will not read their Book Club book over the weekend (unless they are not caught up on their reading/responses!!), but are encouraged to read an independent reading book! 

 

* Book Club responses are checked daily in class. If you student did not do their response, they will receive a negative Dojo and are expected to make it up by the following day. At the end of the week any missing assignments become weekend homework.
