Who can say no to a great story? Join us every Thursday afternoon at Online Book Club as we dive into the fascinating world of stories. In Term 3, we will be going on a wacky and fun adventure with the little boy Charlie Bucket into a mysterious and fantastical world - the famous Chocolate Factory! "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is a quaint and charming tale with a strong moral undertone. It is a beautifully written book that allows imagination and creativity to flow through the journey. 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. Literary analysis also expands a child’s ability to state their ideas using new language and develops conversation skills. About the Book Club Learning Facilitator: Cassie is an experienced writer and artist, and professionally has worked a number of years as a creative workshop facilitator. Her favourite part of any creative pursuit is character creation and weaving intricate, rich fantasy worlds. She is both an avid reader and writer of stories, and is passionate about creative literature and the infinite possibilities that surround it. She loves working with young people in encouraging their imaginations to bloom, and in building their confidence in creative problem-solving within their stories. She believes strongly that learning should be fun and accessible for all, and enjoys employing versatile and educational creative methods when it comes to teaching. She hopes to foster the love of storytelling in young people and create a new generation of readers, writers and creators.
