In February, Sylvan Avenue Elementary School rolled out the red carpet for a “book awards ceremony” to culminate the second grade’s reading and writing unit. Outfitted in their fanciest attire, the second graders wrote letters to faculty judges to nominate books they had read for various accolades, including the “Keep the Tissue Box Close Award,” “Best Action Book,” and the “Makes You Want to Jump in the Book Award.” After the book awards were presented, the students also read each other’s writing pieces that they had been working hard on throughout the unit.
