Battle of the Books
WHO? Reed Elementary and Chandler Elementary
WHO? Students in grades 3-6
WHAT? A Competition between Teams
WHEN? First Week of May
WHY? To encourage reading, foster friendly competition, and nurture the love of books
Students in grades 3-6 are invited to form teams of 3-4 students. These teams will be given a list of 12 to 15 books from a wide variety of authors and genres. Students will read books from these lists, meet with team members to discuss the books, and be ready to test their knowledge. Teams will meet monthly during the school day with the librarian.
Each team member is encouraged to keep a notebook so that it can be used to make notes, write questions, and include information which can be shared with other team members during the team meetings.
All books will be available for checkout in the library.
A competition will be held in May to determine the team winners at each school. The top teams from each school (Reed and Chandler) will then compete against each other through a videoconference.
The Battle is ON!!
