I finished reading “the higher power of lucky”. Now our book club called “The book Wizards” now needs to find another book. Next on the list is “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio, but our class only has 2 copies and there is 4 people in the group (me, Harley, Elliott, and Jack M). Lucky us, the school has exactly 2 copies of Wonder.
On 12/5/16, we started our first official meeting for our social issues book clubs. My partners are Jack M, Elliott, and Harley. Our book we are reading is “the higher power of lucky”(no capitals) by Susan Patron. We already read two chapters in the book. Most social issues books are fiction. There are themes. We are awarded for how our tables are cleaned. We are required to jot about the books we are reading.We jot on our books, we are supposed to jot every five pages. Each person has a choice to jot on a post-it, or jot on their reading notebook. In our group, we read two chapters and at home three chapters. On the post-its, we put on the page number.
Today is the start of our nonfiction unit in reading. We might have book clubs for it.
This book is about a girl who’s name is Catherine. Her brother David does not behave normally. This is his social issue. Catherine is partly annoyed about this. She has a set of rules for David, like “no toys in the fish tank”.
