K-3 Printable Scoring Sheets for each title
Printable bookmarks
Battle of the Books Lines of Text
This is an alternative to paper scoring sheets or using Google Slides for scoring sheets for each book title during the evaluating phase. You could use Google Forms for students to score/evaluate each book.   How see note below.
Students would needs to make a copy of this form since they would each have their own form with the results on their own spreadsheet.  I did it this way last year with grade 3.
Twitter Handles

Great posters to promote current and past nominees.  Also sticker labels to put on books!
Extend even further by having your students post their "wowser" facts on Flipgrid  or a Padlet wall and share with other classes or schools.
