Mock Caldecott Results

Colby Sharp and I had a blast discussing our Mock Caldecott list with each other and our students.  I learned a great deal by listening to our kids interact on Skype and Edmodo. Each reader provided honest, succinct, and insightful feedback. 

It warms my heart that Colby's fourth graders and every third, fourth, and fifth grader at my school read and discussed twenty of the best books of the year. Thank you, Mr. Sharp and his students, for collaborating on this memorable project. 

Our students awarded one Mock Caldecott Medal and four Mock Caldecott Honors. Maestro, drum roll, please!

Good News! Colby did not forget, so you better head on over to his blog right now
