I am a HUGE movie buff! I am the go-to person all the time when my friends need a bet settled--was this character played by Corey Haim or Corey Feldman? I can remember all that movie trivia and can't tell you what I wore yesterday! :)
So it goes without saying that I love Oscar season. I have my own picks of who is going to win vs. who should win. I even like all the glamour and glitz that goes along with Oscar night. In that vein, I had my students create awards for characters that they thought deserved it this year. They created the award and an illustration to go with it while also writing why they deserved it using details from the story. For example: the Best Escape from a Rabbit Hole goes to Winnie the Pooh, etc.
Here's what they came up with:
Love Award-How Much I Love You
Scariest-Where the Wild Things Are
Giving Award-The Giving Tree
Most Pretty Award-The Rainbow Fish
Teaching Award to Christopher Robin for teaching the animals about
the North Pole on the adventure.
The Good Booker Award to Dr. Seuss
Creepy award to Creepy Carrots
Brave Award-the Man Who Walked Between the Towers
Giver Award-Winnie-the-Pooh because he gave a present to Eeyore.
Flat Stanley award to Jeff Brown because he has imagination and make people different.
The award for stealing goes to the fish in This Is Not My Hat.
