Junior Great Books – Due Tomorrow, December 6th

Posted Nov 20, 2019 | Category: Junior Great Books

In Junior Great Books, 2nd – 5th grade students read stories and share their ideas and opinions about that they read. The narratives have been selected to spark children’s ideas, and promote discussion while expanding their literary exposure. Groups meet weekly beginning the week of January 6, and end mid-March. The students and adult leader meet during lunch hour and discuss the stories while eating lunch together. The kids love the idea of eating in a classroom and participating in a “book club”.

If your child is interested in being a part of Junior Great Books, please fill out the form HERE Invitation to Junior Great Books and return it, along with a $5/child book rental fee, no later than Friday, December 6, 2019.

NOTE: This is a voluntary program. Please be sure your child wants to participate, as unwilling participants tend to be disruptive. Late sign-ups  cannot be accepted.
