Jeremy Fink and The Meaning of Life
Wednesday was our final summer Guys Read Book Club in the Park. We discussed Jeremy Fink and The Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass. I was worried at first that the new third graders would not enjoy the book, but I was wrong. They did, and really enjoyed it. It was fun listening to them talk about life. Innocent eyes refresh old teachers!
I enjoyed Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life. As parents dropped off their boys they commented on how much they enjoyed reading the book. It reminds us what we are supposed to do.
Our next get together is the first week of school, and we will discuss the Homework Machine by Dan Gutman. They are excited to pick our autumn books.
Towards the end we talked about what books we had read this summer and movies. The favorite movie was the spoof Meet the Spartans. Yes, I saw it too. Very Guy. Very Bad!
