Product Description
I decided to learn more about this strategy several years ago when I was working in the role of academic coach. I had seen several strong teachers effectively using literature circles in the upper elementary grades and wondered how this strategy could be used with 1st and 2nd graders. Here is what I came up with and absolutely love the way it works!
In literature circles, small groups of students gather together to discuss, analyze, make meaning of and reflect upon a common piece of literature. The purpose of literature circles is to encourage thoughtful discussion among peers and develop a love of reading.

THIS PRODUCT INCLUDES:
* Step by step information on how I implement literature circles with 1st and 2nd graders
*Literature Circle Role Table Tents with discussion guide and writing frame
(Roles: Reviewer, Predictor, Questioner, Connector and Summarizer)

I am currently creating literature circle packets that specifically go with various beginning level chapter books. I use these packets in conjunction with the table tents provided in this product. Be sure to check back in my store soon!
