Who may Vote?
Voting forms will be provided to any students in grades two through five at Eisenhower that has read or has heard read:
12 of the 20 nominated in the Picture Book category.
5 of the 20 books nominated in the Intermediate category.
Students must pass the Accelerated Reading Test with a minimum score of 80% to be counted in the picture book category. A passing score is acceptable for the Intermediate category at 70%. Students may not retake a test. Eisenhower does not participate in the Middle School category.
The last day to take a test for the school year is Thursday, April 25, 2019.
The voting must be completed and tallied and results reported to the Indiana Library Federation office. Students that complete this program will receive an award along with a very special party form the Media Center. Most Hoosier Books are also Accelerated Reading Books. Students may include the point given in these books in their total Accelerated Reading Goal for each grading period. I have read all of the Hoosier Books over the summer and there are some wonderful choices.INTERMEDIATE BOOKS
