This product was born out of a need in my own classroom. I wanted a way for my students to practice speaking and listening skills, while also sharing something that is important with their peers. However, I did NOT want toys and other items brought into my classroom every week! Enter, the Share Circle. Every week, students complete a "Share Sheet" as a part of their homework packet. They then share with the group during a weekly "Share Circle". Students can write about whatever interests them: meeting a new friend, playing with a pet, getting a new toy, etc.
This product includes:
*3 levels of differentiated "Share Sheets"
*A parent letter
*A list of sharing ideas
Ideas for Use:
*Weekly Share Circle for all students
*Pick 2-3 students to share every week
*Communication notebook between students and teacher
*Weekly journal prompts
