Here is everything you will need to implement monthly book talks into your classroom. There is a parent letter, example, content check list/rubric, 2 graphic organizers (fiction and non-fiction book talks), pacing guide, book talk enhancement suggestion page, and a year long plan. This is 6 years of trail and error fine tuning and has been a wonderful addition to my classroom. The kids and parents love it and because it follows the same format (just the books and genres change), and you won't believe the book talks you'll be getting from your students by the end of the year!!! It is a fun way to practice both language arts and oral speaking standards.
*Can be implemented any time but includes a year long plan.
