5 Finger Book Talks

For many of us, the holidays signify new books and time to read. This week, why not initiate some informal book talks with your students?

Introduce a 5 Finger Book Talk to guide them:

  1. Title
  2. Author (and Illustrator if applicable)
  3. Genre
  4. Brief Summary (Without giving anything away!)
  5. Recommendation (Who might like this book? For example, “If you liked ____, you’ll like this.”)

Keep the talks both brief (a minute or two at most) and informal (no need to assess). Get your students talking and generate some book buzz!
