Junior Great Books

Parents,
The Junior Great Books program offers students an opportunity to read and discuss stories and poetry in small groups with grade level peers and an adult facilitator. Through "shared inquiry," young readers reach their own interpretations of literature. There are not right or wrong answers. Students are encouraged to support their opinions with passages from the texts they read. In many studies, the JBG methods have proven to significantly develop children's critical thinking skills. Lunch Bunch Book Club uses the JGD book series. JGB is FREE for Folwell students and is sponsered by the PTSA.

Looking for Your Help!

If you or anyone you know is a graphic designer that would be interested in donating your time and talents to the Folwell blog, please let us know!  We are interested in creating a banner for the blog that matches the theme and school colors of Folwell.  This would replace our current banner and potentially be used to help motivate other Folwell families to sign up and follow the blog.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact Mr. Olson @ miolson@rochester.k12.mn.us.
