For Parents and Teachers:
I realize there is a lot of information provided. Do not let this overwhelm you. Feel free to skip any rabbit trails or magic dust that do not fit in your schedule or do not appeal to you.
I've provided you with enough information for several weeks worth of study. But, this course is designed to be self-led. Please make it work for you -- whether that be over several weeks or several days.
What are Rabbit Trails and Magic Dust:
Rabbit Trails: In every online book club, we will go on rabbit trails of discovery. We will hop off the traditional roads of literature and meander down paths about pop-culture, history, biographies, poetry, music and more. We will take deep dives into some of the subjects touched on in the book and broaden our minds with new adventures.
Magic Dust: We will also bring literature to life by sprinkling a bit of magic dust along the way. These hands-on projects will take us into the book. We will touch, see, feel and learn on our new adventures.
Two Ways to Use This Course:
The first way is a self-paced literary study. As the students progress through reading the book, they will progress through the lessons. Activities are included at the end of each reading assignment. At the end of the book, your family can celebrate with the "party school."
The second way to use this course is with a book club. I lead several book clubs that meet once a month. If you would like to learn about setting up a book club with other children, refer to this article. If you meet weekly, you can use the Rabbit Trails and Magic Dust throughout the lessons. If you meet only once per month, at the conclusion of the book, you can use several of the activities listed as one large book club.
