Prompts for students to use when orally discussing books.

Nurture a love of reading and expose your students to new books through book chats.

Encourage your students to use this checklist as a prompt when talking about books they’ve read. Use the prompts for either formal or informal chats about books. The teaching resource includes prompts for both fiction and non-fiction books.

These prompts are perfect to use in conjunction with other resources related to fostering a love of reading such as the Reading Preferences Survey or our Book Wish List.
