Literature Circles - I just love them

This pack has taken me months to put together. I wanted to get my thinking right and ensure that it was right. It has been proofread and posted. I am so happy with it. 

For 24 hours it is 50% and is only $3.00. 
It will revert back to full price this time tomorrow. 


Literature Circles
Introduce a role at a time for a favorite picture story book and discuss the roles and how they might look. When all the roles have been covered give students the opportunity to go back and check each role as needed. Then group your grade so that they have access to a text to share. Timetable each group and give them a timetable so that they know when they are on. Details are in the pack on to how to do this.

This pack contains 95 pages

Timetable
How to set one up….
It is best to have 5-6 in each group they need a reading session and two sessions to work on their roles before they present to the group.
Each student needs a copy of the text.
As they become more aware of each role, they can devise the timetable and share out these roles.

This pack contains the following roles
Discussion Director
Summariser/summarizer
Literary Luminary 
Connector
Researcher
Word Wizard
Illustrator
Travel Tracer
and a Reflection section

Posters for display in your room
