Mock Caldecott (Second Set of 40 Books) - ROUND One...

2013-2014 Mock Caldecott Awards

*I first must thank Colby Sharp and John Schu for this idea.

*I saw on Twitter they were doing a unit together called the "Mock Caldecott" awards.  Check their blogs for further information.
*After reading about their unit to celebrate "Picture Book" month this past November, I knew I wanted to do something with my class.

*I decided to do my own version with my students.  

*We begin our morning meeting with a picture book.  So far we have read 82 (82 days of school) picture books.  

*After every 40 books, we will do a "vote" of our favorite picture book from that group of 40.

*Today, each student received a ballot with the second set of 40 books we have shared.

*Each student voted for their top ten picture books.  These votes were tallied to come up with a list of ten picture books for the class to continue to vote on. 

*Tomorrow the students will get another voting sheet with a list of the top ten picture books.

*We will keep narrowing the list until we get our first winner of our very own Caldecott Award.

*Here is the second group of 40 picture books my fourth graders voted on...
