what are literature circles
What are Literature Circles?
  • Literature Circles are small reading groups (book clubs). Each group consists of 4 or 5 students.
  • Groups will be created based on novel choice and Lexile level. Students may not move groups after they have been made.
  • Literature Circles allow students to read a book of their choice and talk about it with classmates.

Literature Circles Meetings
  • Group members find a comfortable, but professional, spot in the classroom to meet.
  • They bring their books, reading response journal, and completed job sheets.

  • During meetings, it’s everyone’s job to…SHARE, in an advanced (yeah, ROCKSTARish) way! 
  • Reading ROCKS!
  • It’s more fun to read with friends!
  • We want to become better readers!
  • Mrs. B is crazy…about reading!
