New Book Club!!

The other Saturday the mobile library had its first student book club meeting! We used the opportunity to bring students from 3 different schools together to talk about the books they had read and to enjoy some literary activities.

Each child had to read a list of 10 books in order to participate, and from those 10 books we drew the activities. Some of the books in the book list were:

1. Where the Wild Things Are – RIP Maurice Sendak
2.  I’ll Love You Forever
3. Goodnight Moon
4. The Very Hungry Caterpillar
5. The Story of Ferdinand

We had a “round table” discussion of the books, facilitated by one of the teachers. We also played a lot of games – still grateful for those Play for Peace games I learned way back when!

We split the group in 2 and one group colored caterpillars, cocoons or butterflies…

…while the other group played a chutes and ladders game where they had to answer questions about the books to be able to advance.

After a satisfying lunch, we all headed back home. It was a really neat activity where we brought the best readers from 3 schools together and created a space for fun and learning!
