GR Meeting for March 22

Hello Readers,

Today we ready The Great Egg-Dancing Championship by Terry Pratchett.

I want the whole group to hear the great tale woven by Sir Terry so we can all appreciate our Pine Hollow Egg-Dancing Championship, which will be held soon after we track back in toward the end of April.

Did you know Egg Dancing is a real thing?

I have thought up a new plan for our Guys Read Egg Dance.  Rather than real eggs, which could prove to be more mess than it would be worth, I want to use plastic easter eggs.  what would we put in said eggs…Stay tuned!

Read on,

Mr. H

GR Meeting On The Ides of March

Beware the Ides of March Readers,

Do you know that warning?  Have you ever been stabbed in the back by a friend?  Have you ever marched your loyal army on your capital city?  Do you have a salad named after you?

Do you have any idea what I’m talking about?  Why not do some history reading around this today?

Other Stations for the day

  1. We complete our Egg Dancing Championship rules and regulations.  We also need to finish reading the story.
  2. Write something about what you have been doing.  If you have been playing Yukon Salon or Stack Jack do a review.  Grab a computer and work together on a well written and interesting review dealing with how you play the game.  Make sure you share your writting with Mr. Hutchinson (jhutchinson) so we can add it to the blog.
  3. Books and Basketball – pair the 64ish college basketball teams in the tournaments with a book you love.  Set up a bracket and watch you books move throught he Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight and maybe even the Final Four.
  4. Read!!!!!

Remember I would love to add content to the blog, so as you finish things share them with me so I can upload them.

If you need something new, go check out Books and Basketball, a game we created at SMS Guys Read to go along with the NCAA Basketball Tournament.  You are welcome to get a group together and start a list of 64ish books so we can pair them with college basketball teams, to see how far they can go!
