Today's Book Talk Thursday showcases another Virginia Readers Choice book. This book appeals more to the upper elementary crowd, and is perfect for teaching theme and main idea. What Do You Do with an Idea? is the inspirational book for 2016-2017.
Want to inspire students to take their ideas to the next level? What Do You Do With an Idea is a perfect book for teaching students to take off with their inspiration, no matter what anyone says. The book uses an egg as a young boy's "idea" and follows him as he struggles with what to do and where to go with it. The fourth graders loved watching the idea grow and change the world around the young boy.
This is a perfect book for teaching theme. After reading the book, students wrote their ideas on speech bubbles to show what they thought was the theme of the story. They came up with some different ideas, yet they were all in the ballpark!
There are only a few more weeks of Virginia Readers Choice books to share. I have begun looking for more books to showcase here on Book Talk Thursday as we come close to summer break.
Don't forget to link up again this week! I love all of the fun books I find out about from all of you!
