Family Book Club
February 29, 2008
"Our entire K-6 school reads the same book, and parents are invited to read it too. At the end of the month, we have an evening discussion of the book in the auditorium. Of course, we serve refreshments first. There are some books that work well for both primary and upper level students. Two different books by the same author have also been chosen in the past. Our parents are very excited about sharing in the reading and discussion. The younger siblings of the older students feel proud of the fact that they can talk about the book too! I am a kindergarten teacher, so I read the book with my class, but also encourage my parents to read it themselves."
