Kindergarten Book Club

This year I've been thrilled to extend our book club offerings to Kindergarten.  We've done one-time book studies, but this is my first time to meet weekly with a group where we choose texts we want to read together and study them together at a deeper level.  We meet once a week on Wednesdays. These students read way above grade level and can make astounding connections and conclusions about literature already. It never ceases to amaze me. 

Last week, we read Stone Soup by Marcia Brown (1948 Caldecott Honor winner) and learned about hyphens. What an enthusiastic group of readers!  This week, we are adapting the text into a readers' theater and will video our performance to show the rest of Kindergarten.  In the meanwhile, feel free to check out the video below of someone else reading the book on YouTube. What fun!
