1) They weren't off-task. Whether they were talking about what they were working on, talking about Mine Craft (whatever that is!), talking about One Direction, or a whole plethora of other things....they were continuing to do their work.
2) Students need to talk. It helps solidify what they are learning on or working through. Every time I finish a book, or if I am in the middle of a great one, I want to share all about it. What I loved, why you should read it too, why I chose it....Students want and probably need to do the same with their own reading lives.
Obviously, there are times when talking needs to be at a minimum, but the room is roaring, sometimes I just need drift along with it.
