I am starting an after school book club for my 5-6th graders.  I went to a
workshop last month at my state educational media conference, which was helpful,
but I still have some questions.

I talked about the club today with the students, had interested students take
permission slips - about 20 out of 80 took them.

I plan to meet once a week for 30 minutes (that's all the time allowed)

 I was thinking of having the students do some reading at the club, some at
home - don't want to overwhelm them.  I was thinking of Love that Dog by Sharon
Creech, as the first book.  I thought we could discuss it as we read it, like
a literacy circle.


1.  Does this sound ok to anyone who has done something like this?  Am I
missing anything?

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
