Reading the Nominated Books for Your Class Book Awards
- Grades: 3–5
Once a book is nominated for our Class Book Awards, I ask students to place the book in a special "Student Book Picks" basket so that the book can be easily retrieved by other readers.
I ask students to try to read many of the books that are nominated by their classmates during the two months so that they will be more prepared to vote. However, I realize that not all books will be at each reader's "just right" level, and all readers certainly do not have enough time to read every book that is nominated.
This activity is just a way to advertise books in the classroom library and encourage students to read a greater variety of books in general.
