Our Literature Circle boxes contain 5-6 copies of 6-7 titles. I booktalk each title, then students choose a title that interests them and join a group of students who chose the same title. My class keeps the box for about 4 weeks and students bring a passage that interests them to every class to share with their group.
When they are finished a book, they choose another and move on to a different group. It’s a great way to get students to read several books in a short period of time and students love having such easy access to popular fiction. Each box contains at least one non-fiction, fantasy, and realistic fiction at a variety of reading levels. Descriptions of the books for all three grades are attached.
