Do you use book clubs during guided reading or your reading centers? If not, you need to check out THIS post to read about why book clubs are the bomb digity.
Are you ready to implement book clubs? I have ten tips that will transform you into the book club guru! Let’s get started…
Differentiate your book clubs by choosing different books for each group. The book should be a good fit for the the group’s reading level. Even your lowest level of readers can participate in book clubs if you find the right book!
2. Get Books
Make sure that every student has a copy of the book to read from. When you ask students to share a book, it is very easy for students to get distracted. Since every group is doing a different book, you probably only need 5-6 copies of each book. Check your school and public library. I also suggest stalking the Scholastic book club order fliers. If you are 1:1 or have enough technology for one group, you can get the Kindle form of the book and share across multiple devices.
3. Base Clubs on Standards
It feels good to have students begging to read a book! You can read more about book raffles HERE.
