Literature Circles

You will love Literature Circles for your strong readers. 

They read, prepare and present a best fit book. 

The level of conversation is amazing and you can explore whether you go deep, encourage alternative thinking and/or problem solve all while developing a love of literature. 


Here are some photos of my Literature Circle work from this week. 

My grade are working on four separate books - so that is four groups! 
It is a bit like an adult book group and each student has a role and prepares their read and their role prior to presenting each week. 

This is our timetable and each group knows when they check in and present. 


Here are names of books, group members and days for presenting. 

This is my note page to keep up with learning behaviours. 



There are some guidelines in this booklet and it will help you to begin, consolidate or extend Literature Circle roles. 



 These bookmarks will help keep your readers on task. 


Get on board - you will love it!

  2. I've been wanting to use Literature Circles a lot more this year, but the process tends to intimidate me a bit. Thanks for the inspiration and ideas for organization.
