    The game room is a good idea....I suggested the club to my supervisor because we have to eliminate one of our clubs (step)...
    we have a few clubs....tennis, dance, art&crafts, volleyball..these clubs aren't really quiet but the game room and arts&crafts are fairly quiet if it's maintained

    Are your kids too young for knitting? I don't knit, personally, but my Lord it has caught on here. At my high school, there's a fairly popular knitting club.

    I just did an afterschool book club- You have to be engaged in the conversation/reading with the kids, so it's not just a 'monitor' kind of club, but so worth it!!

    Yes I believe they are ..They first graders..what do you think?
    Knitting is a great idea but I think they too young...
    If you can help me I would appreciate it.
    I want something interesting, different, and not as common

    Yeah, knitting might be too much for first-graders.

    A teacher at our school just started a handwriting club. There are 2 clubs 1st and 2nd, and 3-5. They do a bit of rote practice first, and then the teacher helps them with their writing on homework. She has a really good turnout.

    Last year, we had clubs and organizations on Fridays. I know someone suggested it, but we had 'Strategy Games Club' where they played Battleship, Matermind, checkers, chess, backgammon, and Othello (I'm sure there were more games).
