October 5 Meeting

We had another fantastic meeting last Saturday! Students finished reading I Funny by James Patterson. We all really enjoyed the book. It deals with bullying, family issues, and many other themes that everyone could relate to. Above all, we all thought it was pretty funny!

Students worked together to create a comedy video. Students pretended to be standup comedians and told jokes to each other. They also interviewed each other about the book. We are excited to view the finished product after it is edited and cut together! Students also had a chance to read together and discuss characterization.

Our snack this week was donated by the fabulous Legato Gelato. If you are in the neighborhood, you should go by there and support their business. We highly recommend the cookies n' cream flavor! Yum!

We are looking forward to seeing everyone next Saturday, October 12. This will be our last meeting in the month of October, so we hope that everyone can make it. We will begin reading Scat by Carl Hiassen this week. Click here to read the first chapter! We will also be writing letters to James Patterson to tell him things we liked about I Funny, as well as ask him questions and thank him for funding this program.

We hope everyone has a safe and fun fall break! See you Saturday!

Our next book!
