Boovish Writing and Stickyfish Development

Hello Readers,

Recently we had a meeting for our 7th/8th Grade Chapter and decided to do a few Reading Challenges based on the fantastic novel The True Meaning of Smekday.


We Write Like A Boov

After rereading the section of the story where J.Lo attempts to help Tip learn to write Boovish words, with the cool turkey baster writing tool, we decided to give some Boov writing a try.

Once we had exhausted the table writing we went for the full Boov experience and took to the sky.

Then, of course, it got a little weird as we tried to take pictures through the writing and Matt tried on his best Boov Smile.

For the last ten minutes of our meeting the lads and I brainstormed some ideas for a Guys Read version of the Boov sport,  Stickyfish.

As of now we are working with throwing fish against a target on the wall to see if they stick mixed with Pin the Tail on Donkey.

We have some other ideas, so check back in soon to see where the development leads.

Next week of sister club, The Inklings will be talking about the attractions at Happy Mouse Kingdom.  Check it out!

Read on,

Mr. H
