This project takes you from the read aloud that will prepare your students, to the literature circles themselves, to the final project- a game board! We include a project outline to get you organized. It lays out the entire project plan- a nine week schedule that includes introducing the literature circle jobs during your read aloud, teaching into how to participate in a literature circle group, the literature circles themselves, and a culminating product.
Downloads include four literature circle jobs, examples of those jobs, cover sheet for the lit circle packet, all the components to help your students create a game board, pictures of example game boards, and an organizing assessment sheet.
We did this particular project with Louis Sachar novels, but it could be easily used with any group of books by a particular author.
