´╗┐Teacher Winnie stands in front of a smart board.

Teacher Winnie is in her twenties, with straight brown hair in a half do. She wears glasses and a blue Homework Zone T-shirt.

She says HI, I'M TEACHER
WINNIE AND TODAY,
I'M GOING TO
SHOW YOU HOW
TO START A BOOK
CLUB ON THE
HOMEWORK ZONE.
LET'S GO TO
THE SMART BOARD.
NOW WHENEVER YOU
START A
BOOK CLUB,
YOU KIND OF WANT TO
FIND FRIENDS
WHO LIKE TO
READ AND MAYBE YOU
LIKE TO READ AND
YOU LOVE TO FIND
PEOPLE TO TALK
ABOUT WHAT YOU READ.
SO THE FIRST THING
WE WANT TO DO
WHEN WE
START A BOOK CLUB,
IS TO FIND FRIENDS
WHO LOVE TO READ.
NOW THEY DON'T
HAVE TO LIKE THE
SAME KIND OF BOOKS
YOU LIKE TO READ,
BUT JUST
DIFFERENT PEOPLE WHO
LIKE DIFFERENT
INTERESTS
ALWAYS MAKES A
GOOD BOOK CLUB
NOW THE SECOND THING
YOU WANT TO DO
IS
CHOOSE A BOOK.
NOW THAT COULD
BE VERY HARD,
SO I ALWAYS LIKE
TO ASK A LIBRARIAN.
MAYBE RECOMMEND
A FEW BOOKS.
IF THEY HAVE
AT LEAST THREE OR
FOUR FRIENDS
WITH YOU,
MAYBE YOU WANT
TO FIND A COPY OF
THREE OR FOUR OF
THE SAME BOOKS.
SO YOU WANT TO
GET THE SAME BOOK.
AND NUMBER
THREE:
DECIDE HOW MANY
CHAPTERS OR PAGES
YOU WANT
TO READ.
NOW YOU DON'T
HAVE TO READ THE
WHOLE BOOK,
BUT YOU MIGHT WANT
TO READ A
CHAPTER A DAY.
MAYBE BY THE
END OF THE WEEK,
WE'LL READ 100
PAGES.
YOU DECIDE HOW
MUCH YOU WANT TO READ,
AND IT'S DIFFERENT
FOR EVERYBODY.
SO YOU HAVE
TO DECIDE WITH
YOUR FRIENDS,
WHAT'S COMFORTABLE
FOR YOU.
THEN NUMBER
FOUR, CHOOSE A TIME TO
MEET UP.
ONCE A WEEK IS USUALLY
A GOOD TIME FRAME,
SO MAYBE
YOU WANT TO SAY
ONCE A WEEK DURING
LUNCH,
MAYBE WE CAN
READ AND TALK ABOUT
WHAT WE'VE READ
AND YOU TALK
ABOUT THE
CHAPTERS THAT
YOU'VE READ.
SO YOU
MIGHT WANT TO SAY,
"LET'S READ TWO
CHAPTERS
THIS
WEEK, AND THEN
AT THE END OF
TUESDAY,
WE WILL GET
TOGETHER AT LUNCH TIME
AND TALK ABOUT WHAT
WE'VE READ.
SO WE WANT TO
CHOOSE A TIME AND
SOMETIMES A
PLACE.
NOW IF YOU
HAVE TROUBLE
FINDING A PLACE,
YOU CAN ALWAYS
GO TO YOUR
LIBRARY AT RECESS,
AND I'M SURE IF YOU
ASK ANY TEACHERS,
THEY'D LOVE TO
STAY WITH YOU AND
SEE WHAT YOUR BOOK
CLUB AS WELL.
AND FINALLY,
MEET UP AND TALK
ABOUT WHAT YOU
THOUGHT ABOUT
THE BOOK
OR HOW YOU FELT.
SO THAT'S USUALLY
WHAT THE IDEA
OF A BOOK CLUB IS
'CAUSE ONCE YOU READ,
YOU WANT TO TALK
ABOUT IT.
YOU WANT TO
DISCUSS IT WITH
A FRIEND,
YOU WANT TO
TALK ABOUT
THE CHARACTERS
AND WHETHER YOU LIKE
WHAT'S HAPPENING
IN THE STORY,
OR YOU
MIGHT WANT TO SAY,
WELL IF I WAS
THE AUTHOR,
I WOULD'VE CHANGED
THIS PART OF THE STORY.
SO DISCUSSING HOW
YOU FELT OR
WHAT YOU
THOUGHT OF THE STORY,
HELPS OTHER READERS
THINK ABOUT
THE STORY
TOO, IN A NEW WAY.
SO HERE ARE FIVE
STEPS TO MAKE
YOUR OWN
BOOK CLUB
AND I HOPE THAT
HELPS AND
YOU'LL HAVE
FUN READING WITH
YOUR FRIENDS!
