Caldecott Party

Well the Caldecott Challenge and parties are over! Yesterday we had our pizza party and awarded prizes! The Pizza party was given to the class that read the most Caldecott's. We had pizza,apple juice, lemonade, pretzels, and popcorn! The kids danced!
We awarded prizes- the reader who read the most received a goodie bag and a certificate for a $50 savings bond! The other top readers in each class won goodie bags also.What did we put in the bags? Well- books, pencils, erasers, notepads, a reading timer, a tiny flashlight, and a cool reading tee shirt.!

May- Caldecott Challenge Awards

We began our parties for the Caldecott reading challenge. What fun! Last week we held the popcorn party for the class that participated . That means that each student read at least 12 Caldecott books during the challenge period . We had fun ! Does any one else do a Caldecott Reading incentive? What do you do? Can you share ?I will share in another blog!
