Great for teachers who want to use Literature Circles or Reciprocal Teaching groups with primary students. You will need 5 students to fill 5 roles: Predictor, Questioner, Clarifier, Summarizer, and Artist.
The checklist, writing frames, and graphic organizers can be used with any nonfiction picture book. Print the pages, place in a binder, assign roles to your students, then monitor their progress and assist when necessary.
Literature Circles are a wonderful way to get your students talking about books. Young children in particular enjoy being responsible for their own learning. English Learners especially benefit from using academic language with their peers.
