January Grades 1-2 Book Club: The Bad Guys



For January's Grades 1-2 Book Club, we read The Bad Guys by Aaron Blabey. Ben, Chase, Colten, Dylan, Eden and Hannah were present. 




We then worked on some worksheets, including a word search, drawing our own "hero vehicle" and working on a quiz to find out if we have what it takes to be a "bad guy!".


Please rate this book from 0-5, with 0 being the worst and 5 being the best.

-One 4
-Four 4s



For February's book club, we will be reading The Chicken Squad by Doreen Cronin.

Meet the Chicken Squad: Dirt, Sugar, Poppy, and Sweetie. These chicks are not your typical barnyard puffs of fluff, and they are not about to spend their days pecking chicken feed and chasing bugs. No sir, they’re too busy solving mysteries and fighting crime.

So when Squirrel comes barreling into the chicken coop, the chicks know they’re about to get a case. But with his poor knowledge of shapes (“Big” is not a shape, Squirrel!) and utter fear of whatever it is that’s out there, the panicky Squirrel is NO HELP. Good thing these chicks are professionals.

But even professionals get worried. Especially once they see that round, shiny, green, BIG thing in the yard. What if it’s a UFO full of aliens who want chickens as pets, or worse, dinner? It’s up to the Chicken Squad to crack a case that just might be out of this world.



We will be meeting on Wednesday, February 5 at 3:00 p.m.  Please be sure to pick up your copy of the book at the Circulation Desk (available on the day of this book club) and register (so Miss Lisa knows how many snacks to buy!).

February Grades 1-2 Book Club Suggestions



The Chicken Squad by Doreen Cronin

Judy Moody Was In a Mood by Megan McDonald

To start, Judy Moody doesn't have high hopes for third grade. Her new desk won't have an armadillo sticker with her name on it. Her new classroom will not have a porcupine named Roger. And with her luck, she'll get stuck sitting in the first row, where Mr. Todd will notice every time she tries to pass a note to her best friend, Rocky. An aspiring doctor, Judy does have a little brother who comes in handy for practicing medicine, a cool new pet, and a huge Band-Aid collection. 

Judy also has an abundance of individuality and attitude, and when Mr. Todd assigns a very special class project, she really gets a chance to express herself!







Recipe for Disaster by Tom Angleberger and Jared Chapman

Koko Dodo the cookie chef has a big problem. Today is the day of the royal cookie contest, and someone has stolen his top-secret fudge sauce! Luckily, a spy enters the scene just in time (or rather, crashes in on her roller skates): Didi Dodo! This might be Didi’s first case ever, but she has a daring plan to help Koko. Koko would prefer a safe, simple, sure-to-work plan, but without another option, he and the amateur sleuth take off on a wacky caper full of high-speed chases and big belly laughs that could only come from the mind of Tom Angleberger.
