Each year students, teachers, librarians, and parents can recommend a book for Readers Award consideration through the Missouri Association of School Librarians. I challenge my students each year to read the required books in order to vote for their favorite book. Gateway books are geared for grades 9-12 and Truman books are geared for grades 6-8. If students read the required books for voting they are invited to a cupcake voting party.
Each time a student reads a Gateway or Truman book they take a 5 question quiz and then receive a book cover sticker to put onto the chart. The stickers consist of three book covers copied onto an address label.
