One School, One Book
The Wild Robot

Wild Robot Front Cover

Oakland School is excited to announce that we are participating in an all-school book club called One School, One BookTM. Today your child received a copy of the novel The Wild Robot by Peter Brown as a gift for your family to read aloud together. We encourage you to join our Oakland community of students, families, and staff members in this reading adventure!  

 

Purpose & Plan 

The Wild Robot is a novel that can be followed, understood, and enjoyed by younger students, but will still captivate and stimulate older children. Because we aim to build a community of readers at Oakland School, teachers will be reading the novel aloud at school and students will be participating in comprehension activities. Families are welcome to re-read the chapters at home, engage their child in conversation about the story, view trivia videos online, and/or complete book extension activities at home. Younger grades will be sending the book home today, while older grade students will be keeping the novel at school to read during the next several weeks. At every grade level, the required reading will be done at school with teacher guidance.  

 

Reading Schedule 
Because this is meant to be a shared experience, the schedule below has been created to keep readers on track with our reading. Our hope is that families and friends will be in similar places in the book as we enjoy the story together.
