Book Clubs or Literature Circles provide a way for students to engage in critical thinking and reflection as they read, discuss, and respond to books, all while using text evidence to support their ideas. Students reshape and add onto their understanding as they construct meaning with other readers. I've found that book clubs is one of the best ways to get your students to love reading and to talk about books, all while practicing their listening and speaking skills, reading comprehension, and writing. You will be able to cover many Common Core Standards as well as the TEKS, and student activities are open ended, so students can perform at their independent level of instruction.
This book club bundle includes everything you need to start book clubs in your class. It has engaging lesson ideas and activities that practice important reading comprehension strategies such as visualizing, using context clues to find word meaning, questioning, sequencing of events, character perspective, and using text from the evidence to support ideas.
In this bundle you will get:
-Student Activity Sheets for 5 Book Club Jobs That Target Varied Reading Comprehension Strategies
-Easy to understand Book Club Job description pages
-Student Self Reflection Sheets
-Student Friendly Rubrics for Grading
-Student Goals & Directions
-Discussion Sentence Stems to Scaffold Conversation During Meetings
-Suggested Pacing & Schedule
-Book Project Menu
-Easy to Read Fonts and Layouts
