Allow students to record nominations underneath the poster to nominate books for a class book award. Allow them to generate criteria, and discuss the parameters for nominations. Vote once a month for a winner. Display winners on bulletin board. Place a customized award displaying the month and year inside of the front flap of the winning book. This increases the readers ten-fold. Vote on read alouds, and allow student to recommend books to their friends! The packet also includes Classicott Medals! Enjoy!
This is such an amazing idea! I already do book recommendations, and I've had kids vote on a favorite read aloud towards the end of the year, but I never thought to actually do awards. I am definitely doing this! :) Thanks!
