Cookies! Candy! Pie! Booktalk

Recently, I have been doing library booktalks based on themes. I've done two so far this year: Gangs, Outlaws, and Bad Hombres and another one on hurricanes and bad weather (still need to post that--keep forgetting to get it off my school computer!).

The next installment is "Cookies! Candy! Pie!" I linked two videos to use with these, but I only plan to use one at a time. I get bored watching the same video six times in one day, so I am going to let the classes chose which video they want to watch. Then, I will go through each slide and talk about the books.

As always, please feel free to use or modify to suit your library and the books you have available. If you have trouble downloading the presentation, email me so I can send you the PowerPoint file.

  1. Thats such a great, and neat idea! I love it!!

  2. @Lucy--Thank you! The students really like it, too. I think using a video or song at the beginning not only gets their attention, but it also helps them remember the books we talk about better.
