Product Description
I love Literature Circles! If you've never used them, they are a great way to get your independent readers deeper into their books. If you have used them, then I'm certain you will love these organized and helpful pages to help guide students in their circle. Included in this set of worksheets are five literature circle worksheet pages for students to answer questions about their assigned text. The job pages include Discussion Leader, Summarizer, Illustrator, Word Wizard, and Checker. Additionally, there is also a tracking page for teachers so you know exactly who is doing what each week! All you need to do is pick a text for students to read and assign jobs. Students read their section of the text, answer questions, and meet back together to discuss their work during their literature circle time. Enjoy!

What are Literature Circles?
Literature Circles are groups of people that read the same book and meet together to discuss what they have read. Each member of the group has a job each week to complete. When students come together they discuss, check their work, and assign new jobs. In Literature Circles students decide how much they will read each week—whether it be one chapter, two chapters, or a number of pages.

Which students are ready for Literature Circles?
I typically save literature circles for students who are reading independently at grade level. You can do literature circles with other reading groups, but they may need more support from the teacher.

What are the Job Assignments?
The five jobs I typically use in Literature Circles are:
1. Discussion Leader—Develops questions, based on the assigned reading, to ask other students during the meeting.
2. Illustrator—Draws a picture of a favorite part of the story and explains why they chose this part to illustrate.
3. Summarizer—Summarizes the assigned reading.
4. Word Wizard—Picks interesting words to point out and define.
5. Checker—Ensures everyone has completed their work for the week, reports completion of assignments to the teacher, and assigns new roles for the next week.

*If you have an additional person (or two) in the group, they can rotate a week off or can pair up with another group member.
