#BookTalkTuesday May 23, 2017

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:

P. recommends The Night Gardner because it was kind of scary. The author's description of the characters and setting were very descriptive and made him want to read on.

J. recommends The Amulet series. It's a great graphic novel series that is similar to Star Wars. It has action and a lot of other elements that people would like - machines, magic, etc.

C. recommends Finding Perfect. She likes how Elly Swartz describes the main character. She also loves how the poetry is weaved into the book through the Poetry Slam. It's also full of suspense because there are so many terrible things that might happen, such as her friend moving away and her mom staying away.

L. recommends the Elephant and Piggy series because they are funny. He likes the way the author introduces the character's feelings. He likes the books very much.

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!
