The Final 8 Are In!

The votes have been tallied and our "sweet 16" books have been whittled down to a top 8 choices for the year!
Holes, Frindle, The Junkyard Wonders, and Sarah, Plain and Tall are in the top 8....

And rounding out the top 8 are Alvin Ho, Clementine, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, and Stone Fox.  The class is SO into voting so I can't wait to see how the voting breaks down now that the competition in getting tougher!  

Our first "Final 8" vote is between Alvin Ho and Clementine - I really don't know how the votes are going to break down!  They are both GREAT read alouds from this year and I can't even choose a favorite - stay tuned to find out how the voting comes together later this week!  Write VOTE on your planner for Wednesday to get bonus table points (we are so close to our rewards!).

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow we have our field trip to Carkeek Park to release our salmon - dress for the weather.  If you're able to go on the trip, PLEASE email me ASAP as we still need more chaperones.  There is no cost for chaperones so I hope you can make it!  Friday we also have another field trip to Meany Hall on UW campus to see the Soweto Gospel Choir which is sure to be an AMAZING performance!
