"Holes" Book Club
Having trouble getting your child to read AR? Maybe joining our next book club will help. Your child can join others in reading part (about ¾ of the book will be read) of Holes by Louis Sachar, a mystery and very popular movie. The reading level is 4.6 and it is worth 7.0 AR points. This book is one of the Battle of the Book titles, the 6th grade Academic Showcase title and one of the Visual Interpretation Extra Credit titles. Our goal is to get your child interested enough that he/she will want to complete the book on his/her own and then be prepared to take an AR test. After passing the AR test, your child will qualify to complete the extra credit assignment for Language Arts or Visual Arts. The book club will meet November 3, 5, 6 and 7th until 4:30 (prompt pickup is necessary). A copy of the book Holes will be checked out to your child on the last day of the book club so he/she can complete the reading. Preregistration is required to ensure we have enough copies of the book for all who attend. To register your child, simply email Ms. Kuhn at leigh.kuhn@franklin.kyschools.us with your child’s full (legal) name and grade level. You will receive a confirmation email. A small snack is provided each day.
