Yeshivat Noam Launches Lunchtime Book Club

Yeshivat Noam students’ desire to read books above and beyond the classroom curriculum has inspired the creation of a book club. Since early November, a number of students in grades four and five meet during lunch and engage in exciting book talks with Mrs. Margi Saks, enrichment coordinator. These students spend their week working through additional assignments and reading additional books, yet they can’t wait to do the work and share their thoughts and ideas with the group. When asked to describe his feelings about the club, fifth grader Gedaliah remarked, “The book club is fun, and we share lots of ideas that we think are interesting too. The homework is creative and fun to do, which I know is hard to believe. Mrs. Saks gives us hard questions and even lets us be T.V. reporters, interviewing the main characters.”

After Mrs. Saks shared a recap of one of her book talks with the parents via email, one parent responded with the following email, “Simply the best! I read the book and loved it! My son handed it to me and said, ‘This is a beautiful book. You have to read this.’ Thank you for providing this opportunity for our students.”
