These alphabet books are perfect for literature circles! To begin, have each small group cut 13 sheets of paper in half and label each page with a different letter pair. The students identify a detail from a current novel and decide whether it’s important or minor. If the detail is important, the students describe it on the page with the matching letter pair. Next, they illustrate the detail and tell why it’s important. If the detail is minor, the students simply write a sentence about it on the page. Each group can leave up to five pages blank for letters without matching details. When students finish, they create a construction paper cover, order the pages, and staple them inside.
