Literature Circle Time!

You will find out which book and your group mates at the
end of this presentation…!
BUT FIRST!...

Each group will have different literature role


worksheets given to them (these are the same
worksheets we did during War of the Eagles),
remember these?...
Today’s plan:

1. Each person will choose one of the worksheets from their


group’s stack.
2. You will decide as a group how far you are going to read
before your next meeting tomorrow, but think about how
many nights you need to finish the book in. Write down the
reading plan (pages per night) to help you remember, and one
person also give an extra paper to Ms. McKee with the
information on it so that she knows too.
3. The worksheet you have chosen is due tomorrow on the
readings your group has decided to do, where you will share
your findings from your role with your group mates.
4. Then your group can take turns starting to read aloud the first
chapter of the book during the remaining class time today.
How many times are we meeting?
Your group should plan to finish your book by Friday.
That means you will read on Monday night, and Tuesday-Thursday
depending on how much you read each night.
There are between 76 to 137 pages depending on the book.
Divide this by 4 nights.
You should be reading between 19 to at most 35 pages per night.
I know you can do this because we did this for War of the Eagles!
One more thing…

 Peer-evaluations will be done at the end of the book


 Have you done this before?
 What do you know about it?
 This is the one you will be doing in your group…
 What are examples of these statements?
 Why do you think it is important to fully participate and be
receptive to the other people in your group who
contribute?
 Ms. McKee is evaluating as well…
One last thing!

 Don’t forget we will have a final project related to this


topic area of WW2 coming up.
 So if there are things that interest you, stand point, or are
meaningful, write these down!
 After we finish the books we will reflect on them and what
you may want to do for your final project.
 Also make sure to bring your book to each LA meeting.
That means Tuesday, and Friday! If you want to read it
during our silent reading blocks you can bring it every day.
Questions? 
You have about 25 minutes. I will display a countdown
timer. I will also go back to the instructions slide of what
you need to do after everyone is in their groups. The
groups will meet in these four corners of the room…
The groups!
