The Votes are In

Here in Vermont we have the K-4 kids choice Red Clover Award.  The list consists of ten picture books every year that were published in the previous year.  Kids at my school enjoy the books, but the real fun is on voting day!  For 2012 it was this past Friday.

We’ve been doing this paper-less voting for quite a few years now and it works beautifully.  Each of the 10 nominees is next to a red cup with a piggy bank-type slit cut into the top.  Each child is given a voting chip near the end of their library class period.  They simply drop their chip into the cup/book of their choice and we record the results when they’re dismissed, gather up the chips, and get ready for the next batch of students.

This year’s school winner, you ask?  

Maybe it’s because of this.
