After several, several snow days at the beginning of the semester, Litton RAPS is back in full swing and we have so many wonderful things planned this month. We have begun literature circle/book clubs with the Litton group. Last week, students chose which book they'd like to read, formed groups, and chose their roles for their first meeting.
The four book clubs are reading The Crossover by Kwame Alexander, A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Refugee by Alan Gratz. Students engage in the books by taking on different roles each week (discussion director, quote master, context enricher, and artist). As the semester continues and we rotate books, we will add more roles. This is a really creative group!
Today, students received their books that they ordered last month, and we placed a new round of book orders! It's hard to compete with the feeling of getting a new book to take home with you. We are so excited for next week's book discussions and to see the creativity that comes from this group.
