Literature Circles Adapted for Primary Grades: Literature Circles are an effective and engaging way to get students invested in reading and they align perfectly with the Common Core State Standards for Speaking and Listening!

I like to think of Literature Circles as a structured book group. After explicit modeling, these groups can become independent. Each student takes on a role that rotates with each meeting. These roles include discussion director, illustrator, word wizard, connector, summarizer and passage picker.

THIS PRODUCT INCLUDES:

6 Work Pages (1 for each of the 6 roles)
These support the structure and routines of Literature Circles, as well as to provide evidence of the discussion for teachers.

6 Table Tents:
One side of the tent faces out to the group signifying their role. The backside is a “cheat sheet” of their role and responsibilities.

Rules for Literature Circles:
This provides a common understanding of expectations for students. These agreed upon rules are introduced prior to starting Literature Circles, and revisited with each meeting.

Introduction:
An introduction to Literature Circles and a list of the Common Core State Standards this product aligns with (Grades 1-3).
