Who knew reading could be such a sweet treat?  The students at Bob Hope Primary School can tell you a thing or two about that!  Since late October, the entire student body, families, faculty, and administration have been involved in a book club.  Each family received a copy of The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling. 

The PTO has worked with faculty members to plan several in-school activities, including a spectacular kick-off complete with hot chocolate and cookies.

More importantly, a connection has been made between families, students and teachers.  Conversations about the latest chapter can be heard in classrooms.  As Principal Michelle Jones says, “When a whole school reads a book, there’s a lot to talk about!”

Students are also involved in stimulating math activities and trivia questions related to the story told in The Chocolate Touch

All of these literature-centered activities will better prepare students to be effective readers.
