What Teachers Are Saying About This Book Talks Resource:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students start every reading period with 10 minutes of free reading time, which they then document as a "Status of the Book" assignment. They are working towards completing one Book Talk a quarter on one of their books. This is so beautifully laid out with checklists and rubrics that they quickly comprehended the goal of the project.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great way to get students to book talk books they were checking out of the library. Easy way to collaborate with the ELA teachers.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was a great resource for my students to follow while I was on a week-long field trip with other students. It was very detailed and they were capable of following along to create their book talks to present upon my return!
