This Common Core aligned literacy packet is a great way to introduce literature circles to first or second graders. Students can read the book and complete each page with a literature circle or students can complete the packet as a part of their homework routine.
The packet includes pages that work on the following skills:
-Write a how-to writing piece
-Retelling key details from the text
-Making connections with the text
-Comprehension text questions
-Design your own snowman

After your students complete this pack, they will be excited to read more! Check out my other Henry and Mudge literacy packs.
