Celebrating Caldecott Readers!

Second grade has also been working toward a reading challenge. After we finished our Show Me Reading Award Program, I wanted to get the kids ready to read KC3 Nominees independently. Each year I challenge my second graders to read and respond to at least 12 Caldecott winning books. This year 50 students reached the reading goal and completed the challenge! Today we celebrated with a good old fashioned milk and cookie party. We snacked and watched several Caldecott videos . I am so proud of all the Caldecott readers and especially pleased that many of the readers didn't stop when they reached the goal...they just kept on reading.
