This literature circle pack is for students to complete and share when reading fiction books. The bundle includes the following 5 jobs:
Discussion Director - Write 3 questions for your group to discuss. The questions should have to do with the section of the book you are reading. Be sure your questions are “Thick” questions and are open ended so that everyone will be able to answer it in their own way.
Super Summarizer - Write a summary that describes what happened in this section of the book. Be sure you write in complete sentences and include lots of details and strong word choices.
Word Wizard - Search for words in this section of the book that you (or others in your group) might not know. After you find challenging words, tell where they are used in the story and find the definitions.
Artful Artist - Draw a picture of one scene from the section of the book you’re reading. Your picture should be colorful and have lots of details.
Cunning Connector - Find parts from the story that remind you of things that happened to you or someone you know in real life. You also need to find parts from this section that remind you of characters or things that happened in another story you’ve read.
These role sheets are also great because they not only give students directions for what work they need to complete independently, but also what their responsibility is when they come to group!
