Bookmarkers -Narnia – Week Two

The second week of this program went well. Five children returned for an evening of pizza, reading and fun. I read chapters 6 – 9. Afterwards, the children made jingle bell bracelets and we discussed the story (questions below).



  • When they first hear Aslan’s name, the children all experienced different feelings. Why do you think they felt different things? How did you feel when you first heard his name?

  • What did Edmund know about the White Witch? Did he believe that she was good or bad?

  • How does Edmund justify his choice to go to the White Witch? What do you think of his decision?

  • What do you think of the Beavers? Are they good or bad?

  • What do you think of the story so far?

I have photos of the crafts so far!

Additionally, the children have journals they can decorate (inside and out) while I’m reading. Here are a few photos of their journals (name edited out on one):

Yay! Using the journals is the best - keeps the kids occupied, but paying attention.

I'm so glad you're doing the Narnia series, and in this program format. I had so much fun with it. A lady from Kent Free adapted it too - I love how librarians share!

I wouldn't have tried this program without your encouragement. Several of the kids have asked if I will have this type of program again! Thanks for the idea, Robyn. You rock!

I know I do! ;)

I looked back through your blog - LOVE the wardrobe and the display that you made. I don't usually think far enough ahead to do anything cool like that.

:D I'm proud of the wardrobe. I must remember this week to take a photo of the room setup.
