The Giving Tree Online Book Club ~ A Nature Book Club
Adding adventure to the picture book The Giving Tree
In the nature mini-course, The Giving Tree Online Book Club, we will read the book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. As we are reading, we will go on rabbit trails of discovery about trees, leaves, apples, and more. We will find ways to learn by experiencing parts of the book through art, cooking, and conservation.
We will add a little nature study magic dust and go on outdoor adventures into nature.
At the conclusion of the story, we will have a "party school" celebrating trees.

Are You Ready to go on a Nature Adventure?
Our nature online book clubs are courses that guide your student through reading picture books while adding optional handwriting practice. Each book club is made up of 4 parts that are designed to be a month-long nature study. They are designed for students ages Pre-K through elementary. Each nature online book club explores different creatures and plants in nature and leads the student on nature walks for all four seasons.
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.
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.
