These Literature Circle worksheets and posters will provide the extra support your English language learners need to be successful with Lit Circles. The five literature circle roles are:
The file includes a poster for each role that has a description of the job and sentence frames your students can use while they share their work in small groups. There is also a worksheet for each Lit Circle role that has extra support for English language learners.
You can use these Literature Circle worksheets and posters along side many instructional strategies for English language learners. The posters provided visual scaffolding for students to refer back to as they complete their role individually. Then, when students share with their groups, they can use the sentence frames that are on the posters. The worksheets include a little extra direction so all students can be successful with their role.
Ideas for use:
-Teach each role as a whole class mini lesson before students are expected to complete it on their own.
-Print each poster on a different colored paper.
-Print the posters 2 or 4 per page for students to refer to as they are presenting their work.
-Have several copies of each worksheet available so you don’t have to run to the copier so often.
