Tips on how to encourage student nominations:
Play and learn about KOALA with this Kahoot quiz
Display the Nomination Poster from the KOALA Kit for each classroom
Create a display board outlining the Nominating Process
Set up a display of eligible Australian books and pop a nomination form in each one
Use Library circulation records to display the most popular Australian titles in your school
Use the latest CBC's Notables list for recent titles to display
Discuss favourite Australian books with classes or groups of students
Show students ways of identifying Australian books and authors
Older students can read aloud extracts, write reviews or ‘book talk’ their favourite Australian books
Give teachers a bulk loan of Australian picture books to read to the class. Be sure to include some of last year’s new titles not just the old favourites
Students could receive a KOALA bookmark or sticker for nominating
It’s first past the post so every nomination counts
