I shared the official Caldecott Award results with my first graders. They were eager to hear how the committee had voted. I am going home on this Friday afternoon feeling a wonderful sense of joy in that my students were as excited by this process as I was.
We first revisited their own voting results (see: And the winner is...) and then shared their comments and compared them to those of the official committee (see: Straight from the horse's mouth...or the first grader's pen).
I thought I would give my students the "last word." Many of them speak generally about the books, but a few might be asked to sit on a book award committee in the future based upon their comments. Happy Friday!
