This document includes an introductory/permission letter written to inform you class parents about what will be involved in your literature circles. I sent this out to my parents to get them excited about this new adventure. My first go with literature circles happened when I was teaching first grade, and it was awesome! The kids and the parents loved it!
Also, you will find the job descriptions I used during the literature circles with my students. It told them exactly what my expectations were. The chart at the bottom of this document was stapled in individual composition books so that we all could keep up with who was doing what job at any time.
I kept my groups at 5 kids per group to align with the number of jobs.
