How to Help Students find New Books to Read with Book Talks!

Since we stopped doing {Accelerated Reader} I have been on the search high and low for ways to keep my students engaged in reading. I thought, Let them choose! That's gotta be the way, right?! Kind of... Except when the best reader in the class only wants to read about Biscuit... Today we finally tried {book talks}!
For morning work, one of my kiddo's jobs was to read a book or chapter of a book. They had to fill out their book talk page so they could be ready to tell others about what they read and why they should read it. 
The students loved hearing about their friends books and why they liked the story so far. It was fun to hear them asking each other MORE questions about their books! 
This page comes from my {Reading with a Purpose} pack, but you can get this page, plus book talk pages for nonfiction and problem and solution for {FREE}!
