I recently received a request asking if I could do an episode about book talks. I’m always so thrilled to hear from my listeners, so this one is for you Grace! Book talks are such a fun and simple way to create excitement around books in your classroom.
Today I’m diving into my explanation of what a book talk is, and why all teachers should be using them in their classroom daily. They only take a few minutes of your day! Imagine if you have one student share a book each day. Your class could be exposed to up to 180 new book titles by the end of the school year!
In this episode I share:
The benefits that come from making time for a book talk in your classroom
4 ways to make book talks more engaging
Ideas on how you can have your students add a visual element to their book talk
Why you must model what a good book talk looks like
How talking about books can empower students to engage in independent reading
I’d love to know what YOU want to hear next on the Stellar Teacher Podcast! Share your ideas with me at [email protected] or send me a DM on Instagram @thestellarteachercompany!
