Book Club Update Nov 3

Good Morning everyone:)

Thanks to all my book club members who collaborated so well in  their first Elluminate classroom.  I was so proud of you all for sharing via chat, and microphone so eloquently and respectfully.  I was also thankful that God provided in the way of technology working, which sometimes can be a challenge:)  

 Some of you had not completed Pilgrim's Progress, and I encourage you to keep reading and sharing via Collaborize Classroom or this blog.  As we get to know each other I pray that you will be able to encourage each other as we journey together in this wonderful place called HCS Book club. 

Laura and Samara have kindly offered to write a book review on Pilgrim's Progress, and I look forward to sharing them on the Book club blog under reviews. 

The decision was mutually taken that I would get gift certificates for prizes from Itunes and Amazon to award our students who do a good job writing reviews, sharing their poetry or  presenting their books well.

I will announce the winners for this round at our next meeting!

We had some wonderful book suggestions for the coming year.

Here is the list and the book at the top will be our first read, based on the most votes this time around.

1.  A Wrinkle In Time.
2.  Shadow Spinner
3.  Where the Red Fern Grows.
4.  From the Mixed Up Tales of Mrs Basil Frankweiler.
5.  To Kill a Mockingbird.
6.  Africa
7.  Eragon
8.  Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne.

Date for next meeting:  I know this does not give us much notice but many of our students could not make the following week in Dec 14.  If you cannot make this Wednesday at 4pm please let me know?

Meeting date:December 7th.

BOOK we are reading A Wrinkle in Time. 

Have a wonderful month reading and sharing:)

God Bless,
Mrs Pippa
