Encourage your students to write and talk about the books they’ve read using the language of emojis to jump start student thinking. Use these emoji book talks in your library, classroom, and morning announcements!

This book talking activity will work for students from kindergarten through 8th grade with options to draw or write a response with varying detail.

This lesson can be used with any type of book, fiction or non-fiction, picture book or chapter book. You can use this in a classroom or in a school library to encourage students to talk about books they’ve read, using the common vocabulary of emojis. Each student can fill out a book talk form, choosing an emoji for the book they’ve read and providing details to support their choice. When they share their book talk with the class or on morning announcements, they will hold up a laminated emoji as a visual aid for their presentation and to help keep their audience interested. A rubric is included for those who want students to evaluate their written response.
