The Book Bunch is a group of “book buddies” working together towards success in literacy. Their collective goal is to become great readers and writers. As the “book buddies” delve into the magical world of pirates, mermaids, and sea monsters they will be presented with learning opportunities to reinforce phonics skills and basic sight word recognition. A strong emphasis is placed on these skills, allowing the students the opportunity to gain automaticity with their reading. In turn, more energy can be placed upon gaining comprehension.
A special feature of Book Bunch meetings is the chance for members to become even better storytellers! “Book Buddies” are guided through the creative writing process as they write and produce their very own children’s books. Each student will be given an array of fun craft materials such as glittery sea monster scales or pirate parchment paper to make their handcrafted book uniquely special and interactive. Props and costumes are used to bring our wonderful stories to life. Creative drama participation also expands comprehension skills. The creative options are endless, leading to more enthusiastic about reading and writing! The Literacy Club facilitates the development of society with various activities to promote the process of continuous self-renewal.
