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.
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!).
