Book Bugs Book Group:for grades 4 & 5 (Northside Library)
The Book Bugs is a book group for grades 4 and 5. We meet in order to discuss the book, snack, play book trivia and sometimes we even incorporate a craft related to the theme of the book. It lasts for 45 minutes to an hour and is a lot of fun!
Book Bugs Books:
The Westing Game: the kids loved this book
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The craft was candy making and the kids had a really great time with it
Millicent Min, Girl Genius: This was a surprising hit. The kids thought it was hilarious and it was actually one of their favorite books of the ones we read.
Bud, Not Buddy: This was another hit. Kids liked the story and the craft was very popular (we made memory boxes to symbolize Bud's suitcase).
Everything on a Waffle: The kids thought it was a funny book and liked the main character, Primrose. The craft was "Everything on a Waffle" and some kids were adventurous and tried every candy available on their waffles. Other kids were grossed out.
