February Meeting

Thanks for joining in our recent Christmas party, and sharing more about Catboy, your Christmas traditions and awesome art work on the white board!  :)

Gabrielle has blogged about the book on this post here on the NDG blog.  Please can you go on and comment what you liked about the book beneath her post?  I hope this starts more collaboration on the blog and will encourage others to start blogging!  :)  I would love to see you all writing a review or commenting on someone else's review to win the next prizes in book club please?  Just let me know if you or your parent would like to be invited and I will add your name as an author on the blog.  This is a wonderful way to learn how to write with voice, for a given audience.  Sharing about literacy is all part of being a book club member:D 

Our next meeting is February 5th, 2014.  Here is the link:

Hopefully that will give us all time to read the next books.     We are reading  Hunter! by Eric Walters  It shares the same story,  but from the cat's viewpoint.  If you cannot get a copy of the book we are also reading Racing Home, available on our e library here  which is on the Red Cedar book awards list.  This is an amazing read and I highly recommend!  Let me know if you are reading this book and I will order more copies for the e library.

This session will be our last novel that we read, but please note you do not have to read both books.  Only if you have time:)  Please feel free to share book reviews with me as you go and I will help you edit and submit to the blog if you want to share!  The next part of book club in the spring is sharing on picture books.  More to come soon!

Our winners for today's prizes were Gabrielle for her book review and Bekah and Angus for initiating discussions.  Way to go!  You will be receiving your Amazon gift vouchers soon via email.

 Blessings on your weekend and I look forward to seeing you on the blog :D
