One of the cool things about teaching first grade is how the kids LOVE to read. It is so sad when they get older and lose that enthusiasm. I want my kids to love not only reading books but also love to talk about them and be able to form their own opinions about them. I am going to start having book club meetings! We will start with the basics and once the students become familiar with the idea, their topics will become more substantial and maybe even to the point where they are coming up with their own agendas for their club!
