Choose a Unique Name for Your Class Book Awards

By Beth Newingham on July 25, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

Each book award students will be studying prior to the activity has a unique name that represents the award. You will want to choose a special name for your own Class Book Awards.

Since most book awards are named after a person, I used to call my class book awards "Newibery" awards since my last name is Newingham. However, since I have begun sharing my class with another teacher, we have given the awards a title that is related to our yearlong class theme (e.g., Planet 13 Book Awards for our planet theme and Captain's Choice Book Awards for our nautical theme).
