    I am really excited for the first book club meeting.  Tomorrow during both lunches through Google Meet.  There is lots to discuss and hopefully lots to decide how the club will be run this year.  So many ideas and plans are going through my head that I hope you will come.

Club Options

  • So some options that we can structure the club...

    1) Traditional Book Club- everyone read the same book.

    2) Book Share- everyone shares or book talks a book they are either reading or that fit in a certain genre

    3) Book Tournament- everyone nominates a book; book is then added to a bracket and the best book is discovered

    4) Battle of the Books- Young Hoosier Style.  Get into teams and read the YHB nominees and then battle who knows the books best.
