Confused about what is in Literary

Adventures for Kids Online Book Clubs?

Let's look at what makes up every online book club:

Rabbit Trails

In our book clubs, we go on rabbit trails of discovery. We hop off the traditional roads of literature studies and meander down paths about science, culture, history, biographies, poetry, music and more.

We take deep dives into some of the subjects touched on in the book and broaden our minds with new adventures -- all while building better reading comprehension.

Magic Dust

In every book club, we 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. Students make connections to the literature by touching, seeing, feeling and becoming a part of the book through the activities.

Hands On Activities
Spelling and Grammar

Language Arts

Just because we're having fun doesn't mean we leave out the grammar, vocabulary and writing.

In all of our online book clubs, we include spelling, vocabulary, copywork, dictation and grammar concepts.

We also discuss literary elements found in the book and use our new knowledge for a writing project at the end of the book club.

It's like sneaking the vegetables in the mac and cheese!

Party School!

The pinnacle of the Online Book Club experience is the Party School!

At the end of each literature study, we 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What ages of children is the book club for?

This book has topics that would appeal to upper elementary and middle school.

What supplies will we need?

You will need the book, The Boys in the Boat, Young Readers Adaptation. You may also want a notebook for notes and vocabulary. The project supply list is provided at the beginning of the course. You may choose which projects you will want to do.

When does the course start and finish?

This is a self-paced course. There are no starting or ending dates. Feel free to use at your leisure.

How long do I have access to the course?

After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own for the lifetime of Hide The Chocolate's Literary Adventures for Kids.

How long should this book club take my child?

The book club is set up on a lesson by lesson basis. It can take as much or as little time as you and your child feel you want to spend. That said, the original design is for a one-month book study. However, I recommend you choose which projects will be a good fit for your child and not feel obligated to complete all lessons.

Can my child work through this independently?

Yes, this course is designed for children to complete mostly independently. However, parents should be available to help with projects and grade assignments. I recommend parents review the course before their children begin.

Can this be used for more than one child or as a family book club?

Absolutely! We are a homeschooling family, and we encourage all our children to participate in book clubs. Often we will read the book together as a family read-aloud and then work through the rabbit trails and magic dust together.

Will the teacher provide any feedback to the child on their writing projects?

We provide students with the opportunity to share their Writing Projects with us. If they choose to share, we will provide feedback in the form of critiques and encouragement. Some of our students use this option frequently, while others choose to submit their assignments to the parents.

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We understand that not every book or course is the perfect fit. Due to the digital nature of this product, we are limited in how long we can offer a refund. If you don't find that the course fits for your family, please let us know within 5 days of purchase for a full refund. After that time, we will not be able to offer a full refund.

What if I have questions or need help?

You can contact me at [email protected] and I will answer you as soon as possible.
