Back-to-School Book Talk!
by Alexie Basil
Watch fourth grade teacher Krista Gedney host a book talk with two fellow readers to see how they draw connections between the novel Save Me a Seat and their own personal lives.
Looking for the perfect discussion starter for the new school year?
After reading Save Me a Seat by Sarah Weeks and Gita Varadarajan, students Abigail and Noah couldn’t wait to talk about it! With teacher Krista’s guidance, they have a thought-provoking conversation about:
• How they relate to the characters in Save Me a Seat
• Their favorite characters (and why they like them so much)
• Why they are excited for the upcoming school year
• Celebrating each other’s unique, respective cultures
Watch this video for inspiration about how you can use Save Me a Seat in your own classroom!
