Instagram Book Talks and Resources

RESOURCE TALK / BOOKMARKS - PAGE PEEKERS - CHOCOLATE FACTORY FRIENDS - With the new WONKA movie coming out in December 2023, I thought you might need some fun bookmarks to celebrate! These feature character art by "Melonheadz" as well as quotes and song snippets from the book and movies -- plus a few chocolate-flavored quips to finish up 12 unique designs! 

The bookmarks are available to print in full-color or blackline, AND you can choose to print a combo (as shown) or just one single design.

RESOURCE TALK -- It's about that time! Want a library guessing game that mixes predictable text, kiddie costumes, and the joy of making some purposeful noise? This resource for littles is probably my FAVORITE for fall!

If you already own it, I added a PART 2 last fall-- without raising the price. So please re-download -- or check out my preview on TPT, if you're interested in learning how to play!

BOOK TALK ‚Äď BIG BROWN BEAR‚ÄôS CAVE / Hhmmm, something‚Äôs a little off about Bear‚Äôs cave. It just doesn‚Äôt feel like home. When he notices that humans have caves, too (garages) he realizes that while their caves are dark and dusty like his‚Ķthere‚Äôs one BIG difference. Human caves are FILLED WITH COOL STUFF! That‚Äôs what he needs ‚Äď some STUFF. So‚Ķ he starts accumulating all kinds of things right away! (Of course‚Ķ those of you who need to have a garage sale (like me!) can probably predict that MORE STUFF is definitely not the solution Bear needs! WARNING: This story may convict you to clean out your garage! :)

RESOURCE TALK ‚Äď UNDERSTANDING MYSTERY VOCABULARY / Use this spooky-vibed PowerPoint (or PDF) to teach the language that we commonly read and hear when we‚Äôre enjoying mysteries! My book talks and note-taking guide will have your students using words like suspect, victim, alibi, and foreshadowing in no time! 

You can use my titles or favorites from your own collection. (Just copy-paste your own cover photos on top of the templates.) HINT: I’ve used this successfully with 4th-7th grades, and it is a GREAT lesson for observation days because the kids are so tuned-in and busy!

BOOK TALK ‚Äď HOPEFULLY THE SCARECROW / ‚ÄúHopefully‚ÄĚ didn‚Äôt have a memory of his beginning, but he sure remembered the girl. Every year, she came with gentle hands and tucked him up onto his post in the garden. At the end of the season, she‚Äôd store him carefully in the shed. 

But the best part was in between ‚Äď when she‚Äôd sit in the garden with a big stack of books and read him her stories -- lots and lots of wonderful stories! Remembering the plot twists and turns kept him busy all winter! 

Then, one planting season, it wasn‚Äôt the girl who tucked him into the garden at all! Hopefully wondered‚Ķ ‚ÄúWhere was she? Would she ever come back?‚ÄĚ Well, hopefully‚Ķ :)

I LOVE this one, of course! (It would make a GREAT gift for a new librarian or teacher!)

BOOK TALK ‚Äď THIS BOOK IS BANNED / The author starts with a definition and then gallivants off on an illustrated journey to share a story about giraffes‚Ķ except his ideas keep getting banned for a variety of reasons like:

- Giraffes really shouldn’t be able to eat leaves from the high branches of trees when hippos can’t reach them.

- Hippos complain too much.

So, he changes the main characters to dinosaurs…but…

- Some people think dinosaurs are make-believe.

- Others think avocados are gross.

Um, wait… what?
And then…

- Beds are dangerous because there might be monsters lurking underneath…

- I know YOU weren’t scared… but somebody else might be…

And on and on he goes to explain why there’s no ending to the book that was banned.

By the author of P is for Pterodactyl.

BOOK REPAIR / Could you use some guidance when it comes to book repairs? I just finished a blog post with some useful links. Go to the smart.bio link... and then scroll down just a bit when you get to my website... hope it helps! (The post is about my church library journey, but the repair info applies to all books.)
