Literature Circles (book Clubs) is one of my favorite ways to support and encourage reading, writing and discussion among students as early as second grade. But sometimes the writing, or responding to the text, within each role was too much for them. I want my students to be able to focus on the reading and responding in order to prepare for meaningful discussions. These response cards serve as a reference tool with the defined role and ideas to prompt responding to the text on a sticky note. The sticky note provides just the right amount of space to write and respond in a non intimidating way so students could read the assigned text, get right to responding and then to discussing the text with their group members.
This product includes:
*9 Literature Circle Response Cards (Summarizer, Predictor, Discussion Director, Connector, Word Wizard, Illustrator, Passage Master, Character Captain and a card with all the roles.
*8 Sheets of Individual Sticky Notes with each role
*Sticky Note Response Log (three hole punch or put into a sheet protector and store in a binder/three prong folder for a quick assessment check.
You can laminate the cards for easy reuse and put them on a binder ring for students to use and refer to in small groups.
