This term in 5/6H we are doing lit circles. What are Lit Circles? Lit Circles is when a group of 6-7 people in your class read the same book. Each week you do a task for your book that you are reading. These are the tasks that we do in 5/6H:

Discussion Director- The person who leads the group and asks questions.

Illustrator- The person who draws something about a part in the book.

Vocabulary Enricher- Is the person who finds different words in the book that they find challenging and they have to write the description of it and tell the group.

Connector- Is the person who finds connections about the book and shares it with the group.

Travel Tracer- Is the person that finds out where the people in the book go.

Summariser- Is the person who summarises the chapter/pabobbybobobges you just read.

The book that I am reading for my Lit Circles is called Mitch 2 Sue. The task that I did last week was Illustrator. This is my work. 

I hope you like.
