WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS RESOURCE

♥ Book clubs are hard to implement in a classroom, but this made it easier!

♥ Just began using this packet a few days ago. I am very impressed with the amount of thought and detail put into it. I think it will work well in my middle school English classroom.

♥ These forms are so helpful. I really wanted to use literature circles, but was overwhelmed with all the forms I would need to create, etc. This has everything I need.

♥ This was my first foray into Lit circles. This resource made it VERY easy and my middle school kiddos LOVE the ease with which they can understand the different roles. Thanks!
