I created this product to use with my literature circle groups this fall. The item already has all calendar dates mapped out for the 2016-2017 school year, and as a word document can easily be printed out, edited by computer screen, or copy and pasted into a Google doc to work on it online.
The product includes:
-12 pages of literature circle work
-Dates for the entire year, along with notifications of when to begin and end books
-Roles, directions, and questions for: Summarizer and reader, Annotator and reader, Visualizer and reader, Connector and reader, Discussion director and reader, and word wizard and reader.
(Questions and directions are linked to Virginia State standards and Common Core standards)
I will have my students switch roles each time they group up for this assignment, so each students has practice in each position.
You can use any books you want with this item, and it is set up to have students complete five books for the school year.
