Hobbit book club and movie

hobbit I got a promotional packet of materials for the new Hobbit movie in the mail, and got a brainstorm: book club!  Luckily we had a class set of the books in the library as well as another class set in the English book room.  One of the 8th grade English teachers volunteered to help me, and we had about 45 kids sign up to read the book.  About 30 came to the first meeting, and 15 to the second discussion.  Those 15 kids we took to the see the movie on the last Friday of school before Winter Break.  What a great way to start the holiday!  I think the group really enjoyed both the book and the movie and I enjoyed spending some time with them outside of school
