- I LOVE that this can work for ANY book. I have packets made for my small group and I can easily have them flip to the page to work. It is awesome! Thank you!” - Amy B.You’ve heard Book Clubs (or Literature Circles) are a fun way to get your students reading and talking about books. You’ve even he$6.00$8.00Save $2.00
Whether you're teaching remotely or through distance learning, book clubs, or literature circles, are a fun way to differentiate and get your class reading engaging text! Use these book club graphic organizers to help your students to practice various reading standards.
In your physical classroom or Google classroom there are numerous ways that this product can be used. Give a mini lesson covering your weekly skill. When your students come to meet with you during guided reading groups, read a chapter from their book club books. If you're teaching virtually, you can meet in small groups with your students online for book clubs. Either way you can work together to fill out a graphic organizer that covers the skill you are working on for the week. The next time that you meet with your students, read another chapter and they can complete the very same graphic organizer on their own. You'll see great success because they have already had direct modeling. I do not assign my kids different jobs for book clubs. Instead, every student is working on our weekly skill and getting the practice that they need.
These graphic organizers can also be used in independent reading centers or as homework assignments.
For the printable graphic organizers you can prepare the materials several ways. You can choose the skills and graphic organizers ahead of time for the entire novel. Then, you can make packets for each student with the printables that they will need. If you use reading notebooks, you can have students glue the graphic organizers in their notebook. The printables can also be given one at a time as you cover a skill.
For the digital graphic organizers you can make a copy of the slide show and choose which graphic organizers your students will be using while reading the novel. You can delete any slides you will not need. You can also just assign one graphic organizer at a time if you wish.
There are 24 digital and printable graphic organizers included in the file.
Skills covered include:
Vocabulary/ Context Clues
Cause and Effect
