Attention Teachers: To Lit Circle or not to Lit Circle?

I am throwing around the idea of doing lot circles with my students, but since most of them have reading disabilities I am hesitant to assign a novel. I am thinking about possibly using short stories and going through the same process, just with a shorter text.

What are some of the ways you have addressed your special education students in lit circles? This sounds like a fun thing to do, I just want to be sure I do it effectively and without frustrating my kiddos.

Thanks for your help!

I really should be sleeping right now instead of lesson planning!

  1. This doesn’t have anything to do with lot circles but I saw that you have many different reading levels in your class. Have you tried newsela? It is a site that ‘translates’ news articles to several different reading levels. The best part is that it’s free!
