Meeting News

Hello Readers,

So we are slowing coming out of our winter hibernation and I wanted to let you all know about when we will be meeting next.  I’m sorry we have to wait a few weeks to get up and running, but I have some after school meetings that are pushing our meetings into February.

The 7th/8th Grade Chapter of SMS Guys Read will for the first time on February 9 and then again on February 23.  We will be looking at Death by Toilet Paper by Donna Gephart.  Check out this clip to see one of the Reading Challenges we will be trying out.  So gross….So good!  🙂

The 6th Grade Chapter will begin meeting on Friday the 29th and then each Friday from here on out. We will be reading The Terrible Two Get Worse by Jory John and Mac Barnett.  This is the second book in a series, so you will want to get The Terrible Two and read it as soon as possible.  It is fantastic and worth your time!  I have a few copies in my classroom if you would like to borrow one.  We did some great work with the first book last school year, check this link to see what we got up to.

The Inklings will meet for the first time on February 16 and then again on March 1.  We will be starting with a book called The Dungeoneers by John David Anderson.  We will be doing some great Dungeon & Dragons type Reading Challenges with this book while we wait on our next read, which will be Rise of the Wolf by Jennifer Nielsen.  We read the first book in this series last year as well, go check this link to see what we did.  Both Rise of the Wolf and Mark of the Thief are available in the new Scholastic Book Orders and I am happy to order them for you.  We will talk about an order on our first meeting day.

From there we will get back on our Guys Read and Inklings rotation until we break again in late March and early April.

So until mid February….

Read on,

Mr. H
