Today Ah Lo held his first book club meeting with this friends. I was so surprised how engaged they were. After all, these are 2nd graders. I conducted the initial stage, helping them brainstorm. Ah Lo then took over, writing on the white board “characters, plot, setting.” Then I left them alone, preparing snacks for them. They came up with names of animals (the characters in the book), the plot (bullying), the setting (in school). They were throwing ideas all over and even talked about writing many more books in this series.

At the end, I was impressed how much they were able to accomplish in 1-1/2 hours. We even talked about the “action items” for our next meeting.
