Book Talk - Oral Language - Reading Comprehension
Used to teach Story Elements; this package has the parts of a story broken down in to separate activities. Also includes an end project that requires the child to report out on all the story elements as well as an opinion and connection.
With a book talk you can get the same information you would find in a traditional book report, just in a different way while still holding your students accountable for their independent reading or whole group reading.
Having your students complete book talks helps them practice their oral speaking skills and allows other students in the class to hear about (and get excited about) other books.
