Jr. Great Books

Fry School PTA is once again sponsoring the Junior Great Books (JGB) program for the upcoming year. This 9-10 week program is for children in 2nd-5th grade. It begins in January and ends in March. JGB is similar to a book club in which students read short stories from a specific book and then meet to discuss what they have read. JGB combines interpretive discussion and activities with outstanding literature to encourage students to think critically as they read. JGB is a wonderful program for students who enjoy reading and discussing stories. The stories are sometimes challenging and often require parental assistance. One additional request of the program is your child needs to read each week’s assigned story twice. It is acceptable for you to read out loud together.
