When I started my second placement, my cooperating teacher was in her last week of meeting with the second round of Book Club students. These kids would switch the first week in November. However, I still wanted to get to know them, so I started engaging through Google Classroom.
Right now, the students are free reading a novel of their choice. To engage with them, Mrs. Sopko and I brainstormed a Google Classroom post that could connect with each of their books:
Fun activities like this are great–they relate to reading (any novel!) and they also engage students in new ways! I’m excited to take over the Book Club starting in November. This group will be lower-achieving, so I will need to teach strategies, so that will be challenging and fun!
