Armadillo Readers’ Choice Winner 2017

Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grade students read all 10 Armadillo Readers’ Choice books in the library this year, and last week, each student cast their vote on a Google form! It was exciting to see how each class and each grade level voted!

Kindergarten students chose Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise by Sean Taylor as their favorite.

First Grade students had a tie between Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise by Sean Taylor and Glow: Animals with Their Own Night-lights by W.H. Beck as their favorite.

Second Grade students chose Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise by Sean Taylor as their favorite.

Here are the grand totals for ALL of our England Elementary Voters:

I am so proud of all of our Armadillo Readers’ Choice voters this year!

Emily Arrow sings with PreK, K, and 1st graders!

To say our students have been a little excited to meet kid-lit-tunes musician Emily Arrow is an understatement! We’ve been reading books, singing her songs, and watching her YouTube videos for weeks now, and the day finally came for her to sing with us LIVE and IN PERSON from the Elsa England Cafeteria!!!!!!
