Mysteries of a succesful book group | Children's literature
Making a book group? You have many good reason to lead a book group. It is a great way to encourage literacy in your classroom while giving children the chance to talk about and suggest their favorite writers, tales, personalities and music. They have to consider when, where and how to run the book group.....
The ideal place for this could be your classroom, but only if you are able to select a point in the future when your group will be the only person in the book. If you' re a group of your best friend looking for a more relaxing environment, your favourite place could be your own nearby neighborhood café or neighborhood or, if it's a beautiful, sun-drenched days, even the parks!
- The choice of a convenient moment is also decisive in order to encourage other participants: Do they favour lunch or the period after work? - One of the main tasks of a book group is to study the book before sharing it with the group; if you study the book in front of the younger children, you can emphasize issues that will improve the book and ensure that the contents are appropriate to the ages and levels of the group.
By using trusted sites like Booktrust or Guardian Children's Journals to help you make your decision, you can choose a book for the book group. The first time you meet your book group, you need to define your own set of guidelines and a schedule for the book group to meet. The best thing to do is make sure you have enough activity to keep the group busy for the duration of a group.
Keep in mind - book groups are for everyone! When you have a particular group of students you want to reach (a particular age group, non-readers or students who struggle with English), consider how you can build a book group that fits your needs and interests.
