Last week we had our first book club. I must confess that although this was created so I could continue to encourage the "Teacher in Me" I have to say it really is just a great excuse to get together with friends. Our first time meeting was a bit more chaotic than I had anticipated but in due time my little Knee High Readers will know just what to do when they come! Three year olds require different management magic than my second graders needed! I enjoy this precious group of boys and am so blessed by their mommies who I am so grateful to call my friends.

I wrote the kids names on sentence strips and then wrote the letters in their names on clothespins. I showed them how to use their index finger and their thumbs to work the pins by singing the Shark song and pretending their fingers were little sharks. It seemed to help them understand how to manipulate the pins.
Our schedule for the day..though it was a little ambitious for our first book club!
