September Book Club

1st and 2nd Grade Book Club - September

We are kicking our first month by introducing the students to Easy Readers and Early Reader books. We are going to see how many they can read for the month. They do get a new book for every book that they return. Students have a note on their account that they get another book because of being in book club. Your student will fill out a Character Report for their favorite Easy Reader or Early Reader and bring it in October.
