These fun and easy speech bubble book talkers are the perfect way to encourage peer-to-peer book recommendations. Just create in Google Drawings, print, laminate, and hot-glue to a popsicle stick. At first students were too shy to take the marker, but each day I write a few less, and my readers write a few more! A recommendation from a classmate – or an older, cooler middle schooler 😎 – is worth its weight in gold. And knowing that you made the recommendation that made another reader so excited? There’s no feeling quite like it!
