The Golden Book Award

The reading specialist at my campus is FABULOUS! She created a wonderful school-wide reading initiative with the theme of "Read Around the World"...The students move continents for reading, based on a grade-level appropriate system. They are trying to go Around the World by Christmas.

She also created a weekly award to be kept by the class with the highest percentage of "continent jumps" per week... Mrs. Fabulous Reading Specialist made this trophy herself, and I thought it was too adorable not to share...


Is that not hilarious? I love how she used a lamp base and then glued and spray painted the book and leaves. And glitter never hurts, either! My class was SO excited that we won this week!!!


  1. That is a SERIOUS award! Our reading counts trophy is wimpy compared to this!

  2. I LOVE the idea of a reading trophy - how fantastic!!! The wheels are now turning thinking of ways I can do something like this at my school ...
