Starbooks Sip & See: Literature Circles

 

STARBOOKS SIP & SEE!!

Starbooks Sip & See! This was our first Sip & See for our Literature Circle unit. The class was decorated with green table cloths, we put green curtains in the windows, and had their menus, seating cards, books and pencils ready for them when they walked in. Students read the first couple of pages of four different books, Sideways Stories of Wayside School, Percy Jackson: Lightning Theif, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, and Out of My Mind. Students wrote down a brief summary and rated the books by their preference. I went through their preferences and grouped students according to their choices. Almost everyone is going to read either their first or second choice.
