As students read the same book, they meet in small groups with each student serving a different "role". (Clever connector, word wizard, etc.) This pack comes with materials for five different roles.
Each page is designed to be cut in half for two separate uses. Every "role" should be copied onto a different color paper.
Students complete their half sheet and share their work with their small group. This creates a deeper experience of the book or portion of the book they are reading together.
This pack also contains a brief letter to send home to parents explaining the activity their child will be participating in during class. The letter is especially useful if the half page assignments are sent home as homework.
