Sideways Stories from Wayside School Literature Circle Activity. This 12-page reading activity packet includes everything you need to conduct literature circles for Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar. Wayside School was accidentally built sideways. Instead of being a 1-story building with 30 classrooms, the school was built 30-stories high with 1 classroom on each story (the builder said he was sorry). This book contains 30 chapters- each describing the strange students that either go to school at Wayside or the teachers who work there. Students will read about Paul's urge to pull ponytails, Mrs. Gorf's ability to turn students into apples, Joe's odd way of counting, along with many, many more.
Included are: the page numbers the students will read on a daily basis, their daily requirements, a detailed description of each job in literature circles, an easy to use template to assign students daily jobs, end of the book project choices with scoring rubric, a vocabulary activity, and discussion questions for each chapter. Your students will love the book and the literature circles!
