  • whole class read aloud and responding to literature leads to lifelong reading
  • every page can be a springboard for meaningful class discussions
  • builds a community of readers and writers
  • sharing pages in literature circles show high interest and understanding
  • book talks are contagious
  • homework pages are enjoyable

Distance Learning Tip: You can easily extract pages from a pdf file. In this way, you can choose to send students some of the pages in a pdf file. i.e. assignment one, assignment two. You can rename your files also for easy reference. You can learn to do this in about 3 minutes time; just google "extract pages from a pdf file".
