Happy SNOW DAY!
Well, the snow is Buffalo has finally arrived... all at once!!! Since my graduate weekend classes were cancelled :) I have begun thinking about my little third graders. I want to spend more time focused on building comprehension within their reading. During the week, they are showing a deep understanding of the weekly skills and lessons but on the test, the skill does not transfer!!
So, I think it is time to introduce LITERATURE CIRCLES!? Right!? So, I am looking for some good resources on roles for third graders, management techniques, and much much more! Here are some goodies I have found so far!
From ABC TEACH:
Superteacherworksheets has a few free examples:
I like how Mrs. Cowan's site and free resources!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ms. Winston's website with literature circle cards ready to print and use!!
Is anyone using literature circles? How is it going?
