A few years ago, I began the tradition of hosting Classroom Book Awards and students loved it! Click here to read my post about the process. Click here to see the list of winners from last year.
Even though school ended a few weeks ago, I just remembered I never posted our winners for this year! Just as in the past, my students first decided on award categories and created a list of books they nominated for each category.
Once we had our list of nominations, the voting began via Google forms. Below are the winners for our awards:
