Hello Readers,

So here we go, another Guys Read meeting and another set of stations for you to try out.

Station 1 – Egg Dancing 

Meet with Mr. H and hear the rest of the Egg Dancing story and then develop the rules for a Guys Read Egg Dancing championship.

Station 2 – Gaming

  1. Stack Jack (Stack it Tall Don’t Make it Fall) – Read the directions and get a game of Stack Jack going.  You will love this game if you dig Jenga. You need 2 – 6 players.
  2. Yukon Salon – This is a Kickstarter game is still in development, but you can play a printed version.  Basically you need to style the beards of lumberjacks and hairdos of a set of lady grizzly bears.  Get 2 – 4 players and see of you can follow the directions and match the Fancy Nancy with Hazel the bear.

Station 3 – Du Iz Tak?

This picture book won a Caldacott Honor last month, that means it has great art.  Follow the story and translate the bug language.  Have fun deciding what is being said, or try to crack the code of the imaginary language.  The author/artist, Carson Ellis, claims it can be translated.  You can even try to draw your own book and create a languge for your characters.

Station 4 – Roald Dahl’s Imaginormous Challenge 

Take a look at this article from Publisher Weekly and see if this Golden Ticket contest suits you.

Station 5 – Quail Ridge Author Visit Research

Get a computer and research the authors that will be visiting Quail Ridge Books in the next few weeks.  Find out if you are interested in their new work, or maybe some of their back catelog.
