Much planning has been done to get organized for fantasy book clubs in my classroom.  I showcased the books that I had and had the student write down 3 choices of titles.  I matched each student with a chosen book and combined them into groups.  We talked about expectations and finally today they were given their books and told who was in their “club”.  I was surprised how easily it went.  They were eager to read their books.  There was such a quiet hum in the classroom as they read and shared what they were thinking.  I complimented them and told them book clubs seemed to be just what they needed to expand their thinking.  They all agreed.  I am really looking forward to their conversations.
