-Since we meet for book club during lunch, I pack a picnic basket with my book club "necessities" which include, hand sanitizer, paper towels, wipes, extra utensils and dry erase markers. This year the library is being used during lunch so we're having book club in a classroom. I try to cover all my bases with my students (things that always seem to be dropped and forgotten) and so that we don't leave a mess for the very nice teachers that let us to meet in their rooms.

-Take a picture of the group and print copies of the pictures for each student in book club to give at the end of the year.
On a side note:
-This year I mixed up the way I do book clubs a little. This year my 4th grade book club is high level readers and I will say that the conversations and discussions about our books are quite interesting. With my 5th graders, I have all girls in the group this time around and that too has been an interesting change from before (in a good way).
