In 5th grade Literature Circles...

my students have a reading assignment and literature circle job assignment. They come to their group with both jobs complete and ready to share their work. If I'm not meeting with them, the leader checks off a sheet to make sure that everyone did their jobs, the group decides on the next reading assignment, and then shares their learning.

If I am meeting with a group, they will share their what they did with their job, read some sections with me while we implement a new strategy, I check to make sure that the book is still a good match for them, then we look at the next reading assignment and dismiss. When reading with me, I will have a specific reading strategy I want that particular group to work on. Usually it is something that we have learned in class or a skill that group needs to strengthen.

My struggling readers are partnered with a friend so that I know that they have read it before they get to their group.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
