Readers' Choice Awards

Hey friends! I'm so excited to share today's post with y'all! 
As I was starting to think about the end of the year a few weeks ago, I realized I wanted to do something special to celebrate our love of books and reading. At the beginning of the year, I wasn't sure that a lot of my kids were going to acquire a love of reading, but I have been so pleased with their progress... especially these last few months. We have been reading more and more and choosing more advanced books. I want to celebrate this accomplishment, so I came up with...

We are going to have an awards day in our classroom to celebrate our favorite books/authors/
read alouds/characters/ and more!

I posted this pic on Instagram a few weeks ago and got a lot of questions, so hopefully this post will clear things up!

We voted on our favorites from each category and I complied the results in a Google Spreadsheet. During the last week of school, we will have the Readers' Choice Awards where we'll find out which favorites won!

  5. This is a fun idea! We did something similar with March Madness, but I like how this is similar to an awards show where there are lots of winners. Great idea!
    Also, I told my students about the book one of your students raved about, Raymie Nightigale, and the girls all want to order it from scholastic this month. Thanks for the recommendation!
