This year, like every year, our 1st and 2nd grade readers participated in the Missouri Show Me Award Reading Program. We read all 10 books together from August thru February. When we have read all 10 nominees, each child gets to vote for their very favorite nominee. This year, was a record breaking year...every single class (all 10) cast the most votes for the very same book. That book was Hero Cat. In one first grade class, every single student voted for Hero Cat! We will wait with much anticipation for the announcement of the state wide winner.
A big thank you to all the first and second grade teachers for giving me the time to share the Show Me Nominees with their students.
