Fired Up Literature Circles

My Students

"Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire." -William Butler Yeats I am hoping that this project ignites a love for reading in my higher-level students!

I teach a class of 28 curious, creative, goofy second graders at a public charter school in Texas.

We are a Title 1 school and many of my students do not have the resources at home they need to continue exercising their brains outside of school. I am planning on letting my students bring these books home each night so I know that they are practicing reading at home as well as at school. My students always think its so special when they are able to bring school books and supplies home!

My Project

This year I have a large group of students who are higher-level readers. I want to make sure that these students are challenged so they can continue to grow as readers and truly learn to love reading for fun. I plan on using these chapter book sets to form literature circles. Students will read chapters independently at home and complete different jobs to facilitate meaningful discussions about what they have read.

These chapter book sets will help differentiate guided reading in my classroom to make sure that my higher-level students are properly challenged.

The literature circles will help them to dive deeper into the meaning of a story and help to teach them responsibility. Most of all, I hope that this project will instill a love of recreational reading in my students!
