Hard to believe that tomorrow we will have another Newbery winner. How exciting!
On this eve of the ALAYMA, I wanted to share the Newbery flags that the fifth graders created. They are pretty remarkable and are now hanging all over the library. Is the winning book in there? In 12 hours we should know!
|I love the broken heart between Trent and Fallon.|
|I am thinking this book will win an honor! And Cassie promises she will Skype with us to let us know the answer to the question, "What will you do if you win the Newbery?"|
|The kids in this book group LOVED LOVED LOVED Echo! I love how they connected the stories in this flag with the harmonica.|
|It's clever how they made the three books here.|
|The winner of our Newbery consensus. This is an amazing depiction of the book.|
|I love how they put the nicknames first.|
|The kids LOVED this book! It got far (championship round) in our debates because they were so passionate about it.|
|This is a powerful flag.|
|I love the rainbow socks. And did you know, today is Victoria Jamieson's birthday? If she wins tomorrow that would be a pretty sweet birthday present!|
|I love this book for Newbery or Caldecott or both!|
|We love Nikki Loftin and the kids LOVED Wish Girl! What a simple, but great way to depict the valley.|
