Goodies For Growing Readers


This is my way of getting my students EXCITED about reading and books.
At the very beginning of the year we talk about different types of clubs.
I ask them to join an official book lovers club. We have little meetings at the beginning of Reader’s Workshop to talk about the books we are reading, share our opinions, read books together and discuss, study authors and illustrators and the choices that they make, etc.

Simply put... Giving it the title “Book Lovers Club” makes the children excited to join in and love reading!

I designed this pack of GOODIES (bookmarks, membership cards, wall art, meeting signs, reader response sheets, and links to many great reading songs, games, etc.) to share with your book lovers. I give the membership cards at the very beginning, bookmarks at our Book Lover’s Bash or whenever, and the signs hang in my reading corner or classroom door. I share the links to songs, games, and websites whole group or in special "members only" emails. 

Here is a peek at some of the items included:

(links to author's websites, games, songs, etc.)

My students LOVED creating these official signs:

    Who are those who are included in salvation? All men who believe and obey what the apostle Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost are saved. It does not make any difference what denominational name is written on the church building where you worship, if you obey the gospel preached by Peter, then, you are saved, you are a member of the Lord's church, you are part of the church of Christ, you a member of the body of Christ, you are a Christian.

    What did Peter preach?
    1. Peter preached that Jesus was a miracle worker. (Acts 2:22)
    2. Peter preached that Jesus was resurrected from the dead by God the Father.(Acts 2:24-35)
    3. Peter preached that Jesus was both Lord and Christ.(Acts 2:36)
    When the three thousand believe Peter, they asked "What shall we do?"(Acts 2:37)
    4. Peter told them to repent and be baptized in order to have their sins forgiven.(Acts 2:38)

    This is the same message Jesus preached. (Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved....)

    THE TERMS FOR PARDON ARE: Faith-John 3:16, Repentance-Acts 2:38, Confession-Romans 10:9-10, Baptism (immersion in water) 1 Peter 3:21

    All who meet the terms for pardon are saved regardless of the denominational name on the church building.
