P4 - 7 Children enjoy Afterschool Book Club

25th Oct 2017

Book Club takes place on a Tuesday afternoon, in an informal setting which is the resource room. The children sit on beanbags, they enjoy a snack and a drink.

The book club is suitable for all abilities of children as the children will chose their own book.

The benefits of attending a book club are

  • Foster a love of books
  • Encourage capable but reluctant readers
  • Opportunity to choose their own book
  • Discussion in smaller groups
  • Encourage more reading from a variety of materials
  • Experience books in a different way – fun!
  • Encourage discussion
  • Helps children to practise turn taking
  • Increases vocabulary, helps children make predictions and encourages problem solving

The children choose their book, discuss, predict and record what they think the book might be about. Research the author and the illustrator using IPad and Laptops. The children will have the opportunity to give feedback on their book to the others in the group. Complete a display board in the resource room.
