The Nutmeg Book Club is returning to Jennings in October. If you are in 4th or 5th grade and you like to read, join Mrs. Nolan and Mrs. P before school in the LLC from 8:00-8:45 AM. We will discuss a different Nutmeg nominee each month.
The book club will be held the first Wednesday of each month. Due to the Walk to School day schedule for October 4th, the first book club will be on Wednesday, October 11th. Our first book discussion will be The Tapper Twins Go to War (with each other) by Geoff Rodkey. Please read the book and come ready to talk about it with your friends.
This book’s format fascinated me! It is constructed through text messages, interviews transcripts, screenshots, drawings, and photographs. The Tapper twins, their parents, friends, and private-school setting are brought to life through the means of oral history, and the documentary format. Different characters take turns “talking” and the dialog is funny, and quirky. Very connected to cyber bullying lessons we teach in elementary school, and conveys message in an easy to gasp format, the way our students probably communicate nowadays.

Enjoy reading and hope you’ll join us for our first Nutmeg Book Club of this school year!
