Reading Rocks Club
Students may either read independently, read with a friend or join a group read aloud.
In the Maker Club, we make things, either by hand like legos, or digitally, like coding on the iPads and computers.
Express It Club
The Express It Club focuses on expressing ourselves in different ways, such as drawing, paper folding, and more.
We’ll be making comics in all different formats: paper and then digitally using different sites and apps.
A reading enrichment club where students have different tasks and dive into an in-depth discussion on an appropriately challenging book.
Clubs are optional and students are able to sign up in library class.
Most clubs occur 1 day a week during recess. Each trimester, club membership rotates to a new group of students.
Every effort is made to offer an opportunity for all interested students to participate. However, due to the high interest in some clubs, it may not be possible to offer membership to every student.

Aims to boost children’s literacy skills by encouraging students to read widely for pleasure. Minutes of reading count as miles in our cross country class challenge and prizes are given to the top classes. But everyone wins when they read!
Wheelock Reads Week
The Wheelock School Community celebrates Books, Reading and Authors for a whole week full of activities.
