Mock Newbery Book Club Award Party

I challenged the Grade 4 and 5 book club to read as many books from our list as possible from September 2014 to January 2015. Students met every third Wednesday to discuss books, watch book trailers, learn about authors and, perhaps most importantly, eat snacks. Some members attended all meetings, some attended one or two based on their interest in that week’s book. After a hectic time maneuvering schedules around testing and our snow days the past two weeks, the book club finally had a chance to celebrate our time together and watch a video-taped version of the American Library Association Youth Media Awards. While our top pick for the Newbery award, The Greenglass House by Kate Milford didn’t win, we had cake and ice cream on hand to cheer us up. To quote a character from The Boys of Blur, the book club offers this advice to everyone as another snow storm is upon us: “Read a book, yo!”
