The Kids Club this Fall trimester focused on the book Matilda by Roald Dahl.  Dahl is best known for his book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which has had two movie versions made.   Matilda has also been made into a great movie. I was pleasantly surprised at how much the kids enjoyed reading the book.  We read it together as a class, taking time to go over new vocabulary. The kids loved answering each other’s vocabulary questions. We also took time to do reader’s responses, and the students used their artistic skills to draw their versions of an illustration to a chapter.  We didn’t get a chance to complete the whole book, but read enough so that all the students were enthusiastic enough to read it on their own.

Here are some more books by Roald Dahl that your kids might enjoy: Fantastic Mr. FoxJames and the Giant Peach, and The BFG.  The children might also enjoy the official Dahl website, which has more information on his books and even some games that are related to his works.
