Week 1 9-12: Superheroes!


Week 1
Ages 9-12
Superheroes

Books:

First chapter of The Witches

A few poems from Shel Silverstein

Anthology of Amazing Women 
By: Sandra Lawrence 
This was a great book, it had some wonderful role models in it. 

Judy Blume’s Fudge-a-mania
This book is pretty funny, I read the first chapter of it. Hopefully I hooked some participants and they will read it on their own! 


Craft: Superhero Trading Cards



This week we made Superhero Trading cards. To make this cards we used a template found on the TD Summer Reading website. The kids drew their own superheroes on a piece of paper and had to determine a name, hometown, special abilities and an arch enemy for their superhero.

Game: 

For our game we played handshake murder. To play this game designate 2 detectives. Then have everyone close their eyes and choose a murderer by tapping them on the head. After the murderer is chosen everyone walks around and shakes hands. The murderer squeezes the victims hand while shaking it. The detective must guess who the murderer is before everyone dies. 


Snack: 

Wafer cookies, and apples.
