No Girls Allowed Book Club Update

Friday, March 21, 2014

The third grade “No Girls Allowed Book Club” continues to meet on Friday afternoons in the Library-Media Center.

So far this year, we have…

  • explored Virginia wildlife
  • earned free magazines
  • read articles from Kids Discover magazines
  • listened to GCPS Superintendent, Dr. James Lane, play the trumpet
  • created Origami Yoda
  • listened to funny poetry
  • highlighted chapter books that appeal to boys
  • played the “Who Am I?” game
  • participated in a spooky storytelling event
  • explored nonfiction titles
  • matched jokes to their punch lines
  • listened to audiobooks…and more!

With only a few weeks to go before the NGA Book Club must end for the year, we are trying to put together a few final exciting and engaging activities to inspire our boys to read for pleasure.

We are currently looking for male role models who…

  • love to play basketball (for our upcoming Poetry Slam Dunk Contest)
  • have a special interest they want to share (ie – technology,
  • just want to lend a helping hand during Club meetings.

If you are interested, please contact Susan Vaughan ~ svaughan@glnd.k12.va.us

*The NGA Club meets every Friday from 2:40-3:10 PM in the RES Library-Media Center.  It includes every third grade boy who attends RES!
