These are group discussion questions I put on each table for groups to use during literature circles. I'm hoping that they rarely have to use them but if they get stuck without things to talk about then I'll have them use these.
I found this idea on Pinterest and thought it was too cute not to make! My students have already been taking turns at different jobs but I thought this was a better way to keep them organized. I have index cards in each of the pockets that I can change every two weeks.
I made these discussion dollars to also aid in literature circle discussions. Each student will get 3 dollars that they will have to "spend" in the 5 minutes they have to discuss what they read that day. I wanted to do these because I've noticed at least one or two students at each group who never contribute to discussion.
What goals do you have on workdays? Wouldn't it be nice if there was a workday every month?
