Today in class we started our book talks! Overall, the kids are doing a fantastic job! I know that many struggled with the genre and it may not be a genre that they pick up very often, but my goal was to have them look at different genres throughout the year and hopefully find something else they might like.
Tomorrow I am at school working in the library with the other Language Arts teachers. The kids will have a sub all day. Therefore, book talks will be put on hold over the weekend. We will resume on Monday! The kids will be working on their writing pieces while I’m out. If they have finished their piece then they have time to really dig into their fantasy book for their next book talk.
Read at least 20 minutes of your fantasy book to prepare for your book talk on Monday, March 31.
Prepare for the historical fiction book talks that will continue on Monday!
