The Ending: Part 5 “The Beginning Ends”

Hello Readers!

We are in the home stretch! I’m so interested to hear how the Summer Book Club went for you! I’d like to know who liked reading to a schedule as a group, who couldn’t wait to finish, who still needs more time to finish and who realized this book just wasn’t for them! We will have a meeting one day in September for all students who participated in reading The Endling. I will let you know once I have chosen a date and we are all settled into a new school year.

Here is your final task…finish the book!

Read Part Five: The Beginning Ends (Pages 321-381) by Monday, September 3

Comment once you are done reading.

Topic: The book cover says Book One…what do you think Book Two will be about? Is this a series that interests you (and do you plan on continuing the series as new books are completed?)

Once again I’ve really enjoyed reading what you have to say about the book. Even if you haven’t commented since the beginning of the book (or ever even) please try to offer your thoughts as you finish reading 🙂 There is no worrying about ruining it for anyone anymore, so say what you want to say!

I’ll be seeing you very soon!

PS-this was from my birthday…do you think Hudson was hoping I’d share my ice cream?! Sorry girl-it was all for me! She got her own treat instead!

Until next time,

Danielle & Hudson (of course!)

Danielle & Hudson (and Frankie!)

The Endling: Part 3 “My Funeral”

Hello my fellow “book clubbers”!!

I’m here to tell you once again  that you’ve done a great job with the blog comments! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about some of the characters!! It’s seems like many of you are enjoying The Endling so far! It also seems like Tobble is who most of you consider to be your favourite character….and for good reasons! Many people also like Byx and a few are interested in Khara. I wonder if these choices will change as you read more of the book!!

I also want to remind you that if you haven’t been keeping up to our reading schedule not to give up. Read at your own pace if you need to 🙂

Your next task is to:

Read Part Three: My Funeral (Pages 141-221) by Monday, August 6

Comment once you are done reading.

Topic: What do you think will happen next? What are some of your predictions?

Reminder: The topic for comments is just a suggestion. You may comment on anything else that comes to mind (unless it will spoil something for the rest of our readers)!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer thus far. Can you believe that August is just around the corner?!! I’ve been thinking about read aloud choices, mindfulness activities, Genius Hour and outdoor education opportunities for Room 123. Teachers never take a full summer off!!

Happy Reading…I look forward to hearing from each of you!

Until next time,

Danielle & Hudson


The Endling: Part Two “Captives”

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations! You did a great job reading and commenting on Part One of The Endling. Thank you for your participation 🙂

Our next goal is to: Read Part Two: Captives (Pages 51-137) by Monday, July 23.

Suggested Comment Topic: Which character(s) do you like/dislike/relate to/want to know more about, etc.

*You can make comments about other things…this is just a suggestion if you need an idea!

Dont worry if you’re a little behind and haven’t finished reading Part One. Don’t give up! Read at your own pace if that works best for you.

I found this tweet from the author Katherine Applegate this morning…so naturally I needed to reply!

Here is where Hudson and I have been spending our time reading and journaling. I have finished a book and already have a few more books ‘on the go’!

Enjoy reading Part Two: Captives. Feel free to make comments as you finish reading. As always, I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy Reading my Summer Book Club kids and parents 😉

Until next time,
