Inspired by Scholastic’s summer Reading Summit Conference, I will be sharing more books with students via book talks this year . A book talk is a short talk about a book in order to convince someone to read it. It usually includes a hook or cliffhanger to reel in listeners. It is more of an advertisement than a retelling. For the first quarter, grades 3-5 will hear a book talk by me at the beginning of class. Students will respond by filling out a book talk journal. This will provide a list for of books they might be interested in reading in the future.
