This is the perfect book for Literature Circles. It’s about a 5th grade class that cannot control their talking. This would be appropriate for 3rd to 5th grade. It would fit perfectly into the realistic fiction category.

I enjoyed No talking. it was a great book, but thing I didn't like about it was in the begnning, Dave Packer thought highly of boys, and not girls. In the book No Talking by Andrew Clements, the entire 5th grade has a contest to see who can talk less, boys or girls. Dave Packer keeps track of the boys and Lynsey Burgess kept track of the girls. The contest was for two days, but of course since they were at school they had to talk. They are only allowed to use three word sentences at a time. The teachers were in a uproar except for one creative teacher thought it was a good opportunity for them. Did the boys win? Did the girls win? Read the book.

Book description
From the dust jacket: "The fifth-grade girls and the fifth-grade boys at Laketon Elementary don't get along very well. But the real problem is that these kids are loud and disorderly. That's why the principal uses her red plastic bullhorn. A lot.
Then one day Dave Packer, a certified loudmouth bumps into an idea - a big one that makes him try to keep quiet for a whole day. But what does Dave hear during lunch? A girl, Lynsey Burgess, jabbering away. So Dave breaks his silence and lobs an insult. And those words spark a contest: Which team can say the fewest words during two whole days? And it's the boys against the girls.

How do teachers react to the silence? What Happens when the principal feels she's losing control? And will Dave and Lynsey plunge the whole school into chaos?

This funny and surprising book is about language and thought, about words unspoken, words spoken in anger, and especially about the power of words spoken in kindness... with or without a bullhorn."
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The noisy fifth grade boys of Laketon Elementary School challenge the equally loud fifth grade girls to a "no talking" contest.
