Attention students: Now forming Oak Middle School’s Silent Book Club

 

Zoom Meeting:  https://shrewsburyps.zoom.us/j/87319452876
Meeting ID: 873 1945 2876

 

What is it about?
Silent Book Club is about community: hanging out together, reading your book, having your snack, and sharing what you’re reading with others. There’s no pressure to read the same thing as everyone else; instead, you share what you’re already reading and learn a little about what others are reading.
 
How does it work?
We’ll meet every-other-week on Mondays at 3:30 for 1 hour. The first 10 minutes will be social time: chat about your book with a few people in a breakout room. Then, we’ll all read silently for 40 minutes together (camera on). The last 10 minutes will also be social time to chat about what you read and what others were reading in a breakout room.
 
What do you need?
A book, a snack, and a willingness to “just be in the moment” for an hour.
 
When does it meet?
Meet every-other-Monday at 3:30pm for 1 hour. Attend the meetings that you can. Meeting dates
 
Is there a required book?
No. Read what you like. Each month has a suggested genre, but you don’t have to follow the suggestion. Suggested genres
 
Can my sister/brother/cousin join if they’re not at Oak?
This is for Oak students, but if your sibling is at another school in the district and really wants to join us, they certainly can.
 
Do I have to attend every meeting?
No. This is a low-key, come-as-you-can-when-you-can book club.
 
Is there a cost?
No.
