The “Booked for Recess” Club will meet on Tuesday, April 21st during recess. We will be reading Niagara Falls, or Does It? from the Hank Zipzer series by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver. Students should have the book read before our meeting date so that we can discuss the entire book. This book was very popular with our 3rd graders earlier this year, so we thought the 2nd graders would enjoy it, as well!
For Hank, fourth grade does not start out on the right foot. First of all, he gets called to the principal’s office on the very first day of school. Then the first assignment his teacher gives him is to write five paragraphs on “What You Did This Summer.” Hank is terrified – writing one good sentence is hard for him, so how in the world is he going to write five whole paragraphs? Hank comes up with a plan: instead of writing what he did on vacation, he’ll show what he did. But when Hank’s “living essay” becomes a living disaster, he finds himself in detention. Strangely enough, however, detention ends up becoming a turning point in his life.
Students can check this book out of our school library or the public library. If you would like Mrs. Susina to order a copy of the book for you, please send $6 (cash if possible) to school by Friday, March 20th. This will allow enough time for the books to arrive and for your child to have the book read by our club date.
