Our 4th-5th grade book club had our first meeting tonight, where we discussed The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, by Tom Angleberger. We liked it and we’re already reading the next two books in the series!
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda is a fictional “case file” put together by a group of sixth-grade students who want to know if their classmate, Dwight, has somehow tapped into the Force with his origami finger puppet of Yoda. It looks like an ordinary finger puppet, but every time a students asks it a question, it gives them great advice that doesn’t sound like something Dwight could come up with on his own. Could Origami Yoda be real?
We tried creating our own origami art, and it’s not as easy as it looks! If you’re interested, you can check out the author’s website for instructions on how to create origami Star Wars characters: http://origamiyoda.wordpress.com/
If you’re in 4th or 5th grade and would like to join our book club, we’ll be meeting on the second Thursday of each month from 5:00-6:00. Feel free to leave suggestions for the next book that we should read in the comments below!
