Are your children or students unmotivated to read?
Do they miss spending time with family and friends?
Maybe they don’t even like reading?
But, how would a book club work?
And who would you invite?
Not to mention, is it even possible to host a virtual book club?
It can be daunting to think through all the details.
But, don’t worry.
I’m the creator of Imagination Soup, a former teacher and literacy trainer, a parent, a freelance writer, and a children’s book expert.
I’ve worked to support reluctant readers both in the classroom as a teacher and at home with my own children.
Book clubs, in my experience, can be AMAZING tools to motivate readers, increase time spent reading, and expand a child’s world with interactive discussions.
Neither of my children wanted to join a book club but once they tried it, they loved it.
Same with my students.
They often felt reluctant to read and discuss books with their peers.
Because, if you set up the structure for success, book clubs can be wonderful, enriching experiences.
And this experience will turn into warm, joyful reading memories.
ORGANIZE a fun reading event.
MOTIVATE your child or students to read more.
ENCOURAGE kids to expand their reading horizons to books they wouldn’t normally pick.
WATCH kids think deeply about books.
FACILITATE a child’s articulation of their opinions.
GUIDE children to more mature conversations about books.
In other words,…
How to Start a Kids’ Book Club is a 10-day email class with helpful, motivating ideas and strategies…
…TO GET KIDS READING, TALKING ABOUT BOOKS, AND CREATING MEMORIES!
You want your kids or students to read.
You dream that they will be lifelong readers.
You hope that your kids or students will fall in love with stories.
You wish they would think more critically about books.
Reading ability = academic (and career) success.
Not to mention, we know that in order to improve in reading, a child needs to practice reading.
If you want to get your children or students reading more,
or even reading at all,
…start a book club.
Book clubs develop an abundance of literacy skills, too!
Your book club can be family, friends, neighbors, or classmates.
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, or teacher, get directions and handouts for every kind of book club including virtual or in person.
What will you get in the emails?
