This year I have been trying to find new ways for my third grade students recommend books so we have decided to post their recommendations on #BookTalkTuesday. We'd love to see more classes join in. Don't have time to post? If you want to add books for an individual student, make sure to go to Miss Palmieri blog and fill out the book talk form.
Here's what my students recommend this week:
J. recommends Lunch Money by Andrew Clements. She likes the book because she likes seeing all the ways that the main character finds to make money.
A. recommends The Talented Clementine by Sara Pennypacker because it's really funny. Clementine thinks she is not good at anything and at first she is only going to help at the talent show but she ends up doing more than that.
Y. recommends Ramona and Her Father by Beverly Cleary. In this book Ramona's father loses his job. She likes how Ramona helps her father to gain confidence.
W. recommends Spy School by Stuart Gibbs because it is about a kid named Ben who gets into a top secret spy school. When he is in the school he discovers a mole. He likes Ben's character and the book is exciting and dangerous (he almost gets killed - twice!).
D. recommends Summer Ball by Mike Lupica which is about a boy named Danny who goes to a summer camp with a really mean coach and barely gets to play. He likes all the action in the story and the way the games are explained. One thing that happens during practice sends the whole book spinning.
That's all for this week. Check back next week to see what other kids are reading. Please comment on our reading choices or share your recommendations below. They love hearing from you!
