So this past week I book talked books to my third, fourth and fifth graders. I have, of course, introduced books to my students, but never in a one after the other, showing trailers, holding up books, drawing names, revealing the glossy new covers in all their glory, kind of way way.
The kids. went. nuts.
Like, Colby Sharp nuts.
Okay, so I know all of you who book talk on a regular basis are asking yourselves what took me so long to drink the book talk Kool Aid?
I don't know.
But things will never be the same around here!
Here are just a few of the links that I used to introduce new books:
George's Secret Key to the Universe
Ivy and Bean
Encyclopedia Brown from Kidsmomo
