This packet provides you with so many fun resources to use during literature circles in your classroom! The popcorn theme is due to the fact that my students enjoy yummy popcorn while they work in their literature circles! This adds some excitement to their groups.
This packet includes:
*8 different literature circle roles
1. Poppin' Leader
2. Poppin' Questioner
3. Poppin' Connector
4. Poppin' Artist
5. Poppin' Word Master
6. Poppin' Predictor
7. Poppin' Manager
8. Poppin' Recommender
There are also some blank role cards for you to make your own. The roles come on popcorn pieces where you can make them into a necklace. There are also small card you can print and the students can hold them while they work. Both versions include the job duties in case the students forget.
The packet also includes a worksheet that goes with each job role. This helps hold students accountable and keeps them on target. The leader's worksheet requires them to rate the students based on their work ethic. This is a great way to keep students in check!
When you pop some popcorn, and get your students in their small groups - you will see so much discussion and hard work! My kids loved it!
I made this for my second grade class, but you could use this in several grade levels!
I hope you find this packet helpful. Thank you for purchasing it! :]
