Book Bugs is an all-fun, no-stress book club designed explicitly to build reading comprehension. Every week, students come together in a no-stress environment to listen to a read-aloud and discuss story elements. We focus on creating an enjoyable, shared reading experience while also working intentionally on comprehension and vocabulary.

What to Expect:

Each week, students listen to a captivating read-aloud, followed by discussions about the literature. From the characters to the settings to the themes, the teacher focuses on building reading comprehension while encouraging students to think critically and express their thoughts and opinions. Students do not read aloud in this class. They listen to the teacher read or to an audiobook.

Benefits of a Shared Reading Experience:

Shared reading experiences benefit neurodivergent learners, and Book Bugs Jr. is here to provide just that! Students not only enhance their reading skills, but they also develop social connections and gain confidence in expressing their ideas.

Children who are read to for 20 minutes per day:
  • hear two million words
  • have an increased activation in certain brain regions
  • have improved mental health
  • score better than 90% of their peers on standardized tests!
  • develop higher levels of empathy and emotional intelligence
  • say they like someone reading aloud to them
  • The Literacy Project

The Lemons-Aid Way: Our Approach to Teaching & Learning is Explicit!

Explicit teaching is a method of instruction students desperately need! It is the opposite of a constructivist philosophy whereby students ponder and explore to construct meaning themselves. Well…

Instead of leaving students to magically figure out how to write an essay, we teach explicitly, which is backed by a large body of evidence, and it’s how Mrs. Lemons teaches her undergraduate and graduate teacher-candidates in college to teach! We do it this way because it’s how kids learn.

Explicit instruction is “a structured, systematic, and effective methodology for teaching academic skills. It is called explicit because it is an unambiguous and direct approach to teaching that includes both instructional design and delivery procedures. Explicit instruction is characterized by a series of supports or scaffolds, whereby students are guided through the learning process with clear statements about the purpose and rationale for learning the new skill, clear explanations and demonstrations of the instructional target, and supported practice with feedback until independent mastery has been achieved.”
-Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching by Anita L. Archer and Charles A. Hughes.

Anita Archer trained Mrs. Lemons in workshops, and it changed her teaching. Read a little more about the research behind explicit teaching here and here.
