Book Talks: 3rd Grade

BookTalksThe importance of BookTalks is to capture an audiences’ attention by leading up to a climactic part in the book, and then stopping. This catches the audience’s attention without giving away any key details, and makes the audience want to read more! BookTalks are an extremely important tool in a teacher’s repertoire. One of the many jobs of a teacher is to get students excited about reading new books or books they may not normally pick out themselves. This is where BookTalks come in handy!
