Beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 13 and continuing every Thursday until Oct. 18, Super Readers Book Club will combine fun activities and a participant picked book to help improve the literacy skills of first to third graders.
Each session the children will take turns reading from a book, picked by the group, aloud, if they’re comfortable with that, and do an activity.
“The goal of the book club is for young readers to discover great books to read and have fun with books as they are developing their reading skills,” said Allison McLean, children’s librarian.
Half the time will be spent reading from the book and the other half on activities related to the book, according to McLean. The group will choose from four different books at the first meeting.
“Kids will want to participate because they will enjoy talking about books with other kids their age,” McLean said. “And going beyond the pages of the book to bring the book to life with activities about the book.”
This is a great alternative to other after school reading programs and will fulfill students’ at home reading requirements.
No registration is required to participate.
