March Madness - Chickadee Style

Every year around this time the 5th and 6th grade students are a little sad they no longer can participate in the voting of the Chickadee Award. These 10 Chickadee nominee books are definitely worthy of sharing so I tried something new. Students in grades 5 and 6 previewed the 10 nominees and then completed their own March Madness bracket. I have been reading aloud the nominees and next week they will get to compare their bracket choices to the actual winner!

Chickadee dee dee!

It's almost time for our students in grades K-4 to vote on their favorite Chickadee Award Nominee. Our students get to enjoy all 10 books from a variety of guest readers within our school. After each book students discuss the big idea and share their favorite part as well as determine a star rating. They keep track of this with their very own Chickadee Award Booklet.
