PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource will help you introduce and manage literature circles in your classroom. I have included a step-by-step guide to help get you started and tips for managing students as they become independent. It is designed for groups of 4-5 students although you can have several literature circles going at once.

The step-by-step guide begins with a whole group novel study to introduce students to the process and jobs. I have included tips for:
*grouping students
*choosing novels
*time management

After completing a whole group novel study, students will begin their own novel study and literature circle discussions. Student jobs include:
*Passage picker
*Artful Artist
*Word Finder
*Discussion Director
*Connector

At weekly (or as often as you choose) meetings, they will share their job sheets and participate in student-led discussions about their novel. Through these discussions, they will help each other understand and make sense of the text.

I have found that by making reading fun, social, and a shared experience, you will find a deeper love of reading in your classroom. Hope you enjoy this resource!!
