Literature Circles–Book Trailers!

Today is an exciting day for you.  Today you will get to choose the book you’ll read and then discuss with your new Literature Circle!  I hope that this is a great experience for you, both as you make your book choice, and then even more as you learn and grow with your group.  So, now you’ll begin your journey as I give you a sneak peek of the books from which you’ll have to choose.  Please watch the trailers and read the reviews here, and then give me your first, second and third choice for which book you’d like to read.  You’ll write your choices on an INDEX CARD, NOT in the comments here, because I want them to be private.  In your note, please include how you know it’s just right for you and why you’d like to read it. I’ll let you know which group you’re in by Monday, January 28.  Happy book shopping!
