Host a Class Book Awards Ceremony
- Grades: 3–5
Each year, my class participates in a yearlong Class Book Awards activity. The winning books are announced at an exciting Class Book Award ceremony. I set up a podium and play traditional awards ceremony music. I act as the host of the awards show, and my students act as the presenters using a fake microphone.
You can even have any students who nominated a book walk the "red carpet" with one of the books they nominated before the ceremony starts.
Selected students announce the nominees in each category and then ask their co-presenter to open a colorful envelope to reveal the winning book. The "audience" cheers, and the student who nominated the book can choose to make an "acceptance" speech to thank his or her classmates for voting for the book. The student also explains why he or she nominated the book.
