Sunshine State Book Club

Gateway is super excited about this year’s Sunshine State Book Club for grades 3-5.  We will meet 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

Action Plan:   
I will read for 30 minutes each night.



  • Lead: I will track how many minutes 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 mark the box on the book club tracker and track my progress on my bookmark.
