Literature Circle Sheets for Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell.
These sheets are designed to be used in small groups. Each group of 3-6 students should follows the directions on the sheet after having read the corresponding chapters. The group works together to fill in the discussion guide at the top of the page and answer the question. Then each students individually writes a response to the journal prompt and shares their response with the rest of the group. The group can further discuss their responses, time permitting. The group then answers the comprehension questions at the bottom of the page. If there are multiple literature circle groups happening at the same time for the same book, the whole class can then discuss each part of the sheet, especially the comprehension questions. This is a good opportunity to model writing proper answers in the form of complete sentences.
