This packet was created to accompany the novel Dear Mr. Henshaw. It includes an assignment spreadsheet for the teacher and literature circle role assignments for students. It is designed to be used by a group of four fourth or fifth grade students. The roles used are Discussion Director, Passage Picker, Character Sketcher, and Word Wizard. The novel has been divided into five sections. The assignment sheets tell students what types of passages to look for and include vocabulary words. I have accompanying materials (separate product) that explain each role in detail and teach students how to complete the roles. The materials also include examples of completed roles.
