For the next few weeks in library, the students will be talking about their favorite books with their classmates. We LOVE to talk about books in library!
We will have more time during library class as the students will not be checking out new books in the next few weeks. I thought this would give everyone a chance to bring in their favorite books to share with their classmates, as well as to give some great ideas for books to read over the summer.
This week, we will talk about what book talks are (for those who do not know), and give them some examples of ways to share books with others. During the weeks of May 20 and 27, the students will bring their books to library class to share. Students who will miss class on due to the Memorial Day holiday or field trips will share on a different day.
Each student should bring in the book of his or her choice and be able to speak about it in front of the class for 2-3 minutes. See the back of this sheet for suggestions. Since library class is 30 minutes, we should be able to hear from half of the class the first week and the other half the second week.
Please look for a note to come home with your child this week about when he/she will be sharing their book, and also some suggestions about what they can share. You can also get a copy here.
