Sunshine State Book Club
Gateway is super excited about this year’s Sunshine State Book Club for grades 3-5. We will meet the first Friday of each month during lunch. Students will get lunch with their class as usual and then report to Mrs. Hood’s room to eat and engage in meaningful book discussions and activities.
Sunshine State Book Club WIG:
I will read all 15 Sunshine State Reader Books by the end of March 2018.
Action Plan: I will read 1 book in August, then I will read 2 books per month Sept. through March.
Lead: I will track how many pages I read each day and write a short summary of what I read in my Reading Log. I will keep my log in my binder.
Lag: After I read a book and pass the AR Test, I will sign the book poster in the media center, color in the box on the book club class trackers, and track my progress on my bookmark.
