Second Grade Tackle Caldecott Challenge

Second Graders learn the criteria for the Caldecott Award.  They were challenged to read five Caldecott books over the course of January and submit a reading log.  There will be one winner from each homeroom.  The winners will receive a Caldecott book to keep.  We will be reading and evaluating potential 2015 Caldecott winners during library class.  Here is our first book:


  The Right Word 
Written by Jen Bryant 
Illustrated by Melissa Sweet

the SCRAPS book 
by Lois Ehlert

Viva Frida
by Yuyi Morales

Sam and Dave Dig a Hole
by Mac Barnett

by Dan Santat

Cast your vote on the 2015 Caldecott Award winner.

These are the winners of  our Caldecott Reading Challenge.  2nd graders were encouraged to read five Caldecott winners and record their books on a log.  We drew one winner from each class and those students won a copy of the 2015 Caldecott Winner- The Adventures of BEEKLE.  Congrats!
