We Interrupt This Friday to Bring You...

I'm so excited to have the opportunity to share what we do in our NEXT CHAPTER Reading Club with everyone in the awesome book world! Here is a link to my post as a guest blogger at The Nerdy Book Club!:


Ms Patty and I really do enjoy our monthly meetings with this great bunch of kids. Most of them go right home and read the book, nary a complaint. Our February meeting focused on the book Emily's Fortune by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. Of course we had to expand on the western theme (we love a theme here at RML) and had Trail Mix for snack! We played a fun game where the kids had to come up with a name for themselves similar to the funny sayings at the end of each chapter of the book (Rootin-Tootin Robbie or Pancakes Patty) and then had the kids design 'Wanted' posters of themselves for their reading infractions! Here are some of their reading violations:

"Losing books while reading" (how does that happen?)
"3,000,000 overdue books" (ack!)
"Reading too many books at once" (I'm guilty)
"Reading with a stuffed animal" (aw, cute)
"Stealing money from Book Club" (I'd say "oh, no!" but we have no money, so)
"Not reading alot of fantasy" (work on that one)
"Reading without a permit" (Luckily, no permit needed!!!!!)
