Who can say no to a great story? Join us every Wednesday afternoon at Online Book Club as we dive into the fascinating world of stories. This term we will follow Jack and Annie on their exciting quests and dangerous journeys each week by reading the 'Magic Tree House' book series by Mary Pope Osborne. Book clubs create space for children to talk, ask questions, and interact with peers on a level that other reading groups in school or at home often can’t. These discussions are facilitated by NPE Learning Facilitator and presented in a way that is accessible for children and gives them the space to uncover the story independently and as a team. While many children at this age are already reading for pleasure, they typically haven’t started to explore texts fully. In NPE’s weekly book club, we introduce five main story elements such as characters, setting, problems, events, and solutions. However, understanding a book deeply goes beyond identifying these elements. Book clubs delve into themes, characters’ motivations, language features and more so that students both understand an author’s purpose and begin to form their opinions. Liiterary analysis also expands a child’s ability to state their ideas using new language and develops conversation skills.
