Students Engage in Lively Discussions During Book Club
Main Street School students and their families participated in lively discussions about books during the school’s Parent-Child Book Club on Nov. 10.
“We are very excited that we have a tradition here at Main Street School that supports fostering a love of reading for our students while creating a fun way to explore and understand books at a deeper level,” Principal Joyce Chapnick said.
Library media specialist Gayle Pulley and a team of parents selected the age-appropriate books for the fourth and fifth graders while the PTSA provided each family with a free copy of their chosen book. Families had a choice of reading one of five novels that included “Before the Ever After” by Jacqueline Woodson, “Flora & Ulysses” by Kate DiCamillo, “Falling In” by Frances O’Roark Dowell, “Restart” by Gordon Korman and “Song for a Whale” by Lynne Kelly.
This was Main Street School’s first of two Parent-Child Book Club events for the school year.
