Literature Circles for Above Grade Level

Has anyone implemented Literature Circles for above grade level readers? If so, I need advice and ideas on how to do this successfully. I have a group of about 8 above grade level kids (some of them get pulled during our reading block with our gifted teacher a few days a week) , however, I still need to meet with this group at least twice a week. I think I need something beyond leveled reading/guided reading for this group. I need to make sure they achieve one year's growth this year. Thank you so much for any advice

Check out Laura Candler's site (www.lauracandler.com). She has a lot of information for Literature Circles that might be of help. I used her stuff a lot when I taught Grade 3 and 4.

for the ideas and resources. I really want to provide enrichment for these kiddos. My group schedule right now is looking like I can only meet with them 2 times a week, but they should be able to handle independent tasks that go along with this. Thanks again
