Product Description
My students love what I call Book Club, and so do I! In the past, I always incorporated literature circles into my reading workshop. However, I was looking for a way for students to discuss the books they were reading in a more informal, true-to-life way. Just to give you an idea of how I got book clubs set up, I did the following:

1) Create a list of books that I think my students would love to read.
2) Give a book talk on each novel.
3) Have students write down their top three choices.
4) Group students together based on their choices. I typically try to have 4-5 students per group.
5) Before the first meeting, get together to establish book club norms (i.e. respect others' opinions, come to the meetings prepared, etc.). As a side note, my students also decided to bring snacks to each meeting to share with their group members.

Once the above has been established, I used this packet for students to decide how many pages to read before each meeting, to guide their discussions at each meeting, and to give them a sheet to record questions to present to their group at the meetings.

This particular packet allows students to have 6 meetings. In my own classroom, I do two per week (Tuesday and Friday), because my students fly through books; however, you could easily spread it out over 6 weeks or longer (or do even 3 meetings per week)!
