With all of that being said, we started our Lit Circles yesterday. We read the first 6 chapter of the book and discussed what each job was again before I sent the students off on their own. I took my jobs from something that I had purchased from teacherspayteachers earlier in the year. I keep up example posters for each job so the students know what I expect. Since it was our first day, I gave them a little extra time to work on their job for the day. I also took some time to discuss and share with the class the paper the leader of the group will fill out each day for participation.
