What is in an Online Book Club?
We will go on rabbit trails of discovery. We will hop off the traditional roads of literature studies 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.
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 through science, art, games and more. We will touch, see, feel and learn about the book through the activities.
Vocabulary & Grammar
Every Family Online Book Club includes the chance to learn spelling and grammar through copywork and dictation. We will also discuss literary elements found in the book and use our new knowledge for a writing project.
The pinnacle of the Family Online Book Club experience is the Party School! At the end of each literature study, we will celebrate the book with a party. Invite friends or family over for food and fun! All the ideas for food, decorations, and activities are included.
