Literature Circles Update

I posted this in hopes I would have it ready by this weekend.  Unfortunately for me, everyone in my house has come down with the stomach bug... YUCK!  My 9 months pregnant self included!  We are feeling better now, but I'm afraid it has put me behind in my literature circle deadline.  I will work hard to get it complete for 1st & 2nd by this weekend, but my 3-5 edition may be sometime next week.  Sorry for the delay!

Here's a sneak peek of what I have up my sleeve in the very near future!


When I taught 5th grade reading, my class participated in literature circles that I created for them.  They really enjoyed this because it gave them an opportunity to be independent readers and learners.  Along with a literature circle packet for grades 3-5, I am also making one for 1st & 2nd graders that can be completed with teacher guidance.  I am really excited about my next post that will include ideas of how I made it work in my own classroom along with the product that can be purchased in my TpT store.  Stay tuned because I have some really great treats so you can start your new year off right and implement in your classroom for the second half of the school year.  My little boy has been sick with a virus, but I am hoping to have this complete and posted by Friday.... fingers crossed!

  2. I teach 6th, but I have a feeling that the 3rd-5th grade version would be great for my two regular classes!!! So excited about this!

  3. Ladies, I am working on this as we speak! I am just in the beginning stages of it where I am taking the time to discuss how I used it in my own classroom.... WHEW! It's a lot of information! I hope you are going to love it! Katie- I'm sure your 6th graders will enjoy it.

  4. Just pinned your packet...looking forward to the finished product.
