Holiday Reading Club for Teachers

1,094 views

Published on

This is a book club I did for teachers on the Thursday before our Winter Break. We all brought treats to share, and each person talked about one book they love. Teachers sent me their titles the week before our club meeting, and I compiled all the titles into a PowerPoint for discussion. It was so much fun!
