Paper Bag Book Clubs!

Paper Bag Book Club questions and editable templates for book study discussions in K-2

PAPER BAG BOOK CLUBS

I started doing Paper Bag Book Club when I moved into second grade. I scheduled it for the last Guided Reading period of the month, after we had completed our book study unit. This activity was a fun and engaging way to wrap up learning about our book!

I always changed the student groups with each book study, so that students got to speak with and learn from different classmates.

During Paper Bag Book Club, each student was given a paper bag filled with popcorn. It was stapled shut, with the book club questions attached.

The groups of students were allowed to go anywhere in the classroom to work through their questions...and eat popcorn :)

Student supplies included: their paper bag with attached form, a pencil, and a copy of the book we had been reading for our book study.

This activity is perfect for student collaboration, fostering discussion, developing speaking and listening skills, and delving deeper into the focus text.

See how we did our Paper Bag Book Club for our book studies on Hi! Fly Guy (here), Magic Tree House (here), and Horrible Harry (here).

I have made a set of generic Paper Bag Book Club discussion questions that meet important learning standards in K-2 for Common Core, TEKS, and VA SOL. I also added several editable templates so that you may type in whatever book questions you'd like your students to discuss, focusing on YOUR book study, and covering the skills YOUR class needs to work on.
