Club READ!

Alright folks!...

It's that time... new after school clubs will be starting up and I'm excited to be offering a Club READ!  :D

…Calling all readers in the AIS middle school!

If you are a person who loves to lose yourself in a great book… this club is for YOU!

Have you heard of DEAR time? DEAR stands for Drop Everything And Read… and I plan to do just that in this after school club! 

We will have an hour each week dedicated to free read time. Read a novel; read about an interesting topic in our non-fiction section; continue reading your favorite Manga series; read a newspaper, magazine, or picture books! …Let’s come together, get comfy, and READ.

I’m open to hearing your ideas on how to make Club READ awesome! Together, let’s come up with ideas… whether we keep it simple or get creative… I’m open to your ideas and to what you want to make of our hour together each week. So far, I’m thinking -- let’s have big, comfy pillows made… get comfortable in the BEST room in school (the library!)… and READ. 

Maybe we also fund-raise for a wonderful literacy-based organization, such as Room to Read Vietnam… or we plaster the school’s walls with pictures and posters about reading! ...I’m looking for a group of students who want to relax and have fun each week!


  1. I want to come to Club READ too! It sounds like it would be perfect for me!

  2. Mom, you WOULD love Club READ! This is a weekly activity that I will look forward to each time. :) We wish you could join with us! XOXO
