My BESTSELLING Literature Circles for the Primary Grades
is now available for NONFICTION texts!
Literature circles are a GREAT way to introduce nonfiction text in a small group. Adapted for the primary grades, my nonfiction literature circles feature role cards, response sheets, and helpful tips for implementing with your first, second, third graders.
Foster discussion, higher level thinking and a love for literacy --all while implementing common core with great books you already have in your library.
