books they are reading and then share their reactions, thoughts, and opinions with family members, friends, and
kids around the world. Students will learn to make personal connections to what they are reading, summarize
stories, construct meaning from text, express their opinions and reactions, and compare literary works. Student
book reviews and illustrations will be published on the Spaghetti Book Club web site. The club will have its
own customized home page with the students' self-portraits and links to their reviews. Each student receives
his/her own home page with a self-portrait and links to his/her reviews. In addition, each class receives a
dedicated area in the Spaghetti Clubhouse (an online bulletin board) where students can exchange feedback and
read messages posted from friends, family members and other visitors who have read their reviews.
During the club, students will: Read books; Engage in book talks; Discuss the elements of a book review; Read
and discuss reviews from the Spaghetti Book Club website; Write group reviews to practice writing summaries,
opinions and recommendations; Work on their own reviews; Read their reviews for feedback from their peers;
