Last week, we shared Finding Winnie, which was the 2016 Caldecott medal winner.
2nd - 4th grade classes were asked to consider stacks of books on the tables and determine whether or not they were indeed Caldecott worthy. Books on the tables were a mix of popular titles, former Caldecott contenders and random titles take from the shelves.
What Mrs. Kent observed is that students had a difficult time locating specific bits of information from the front covers/title pages of the picture books.
So, we are going to review book parts this this week for ALL grades with a whole group lesson, small group table challenges and computer activities followed by check-out.
