                              Battling with Books


WHO?         Reed Elementary and Chandler Elementary

WHO?         Students in grades 3-6

WHAT?       A Competition between Teams

WHEN?       October - April

WHY?          To encourage reading, foster friendly competition, and nurture the love of books


Students in grades 3-6 are invited to form teams of 3-5 students.  These teams will be given a list of 10 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 an information sheet on each book 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 March or April 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.

Last year, our Chandler 3rd-4th grade and our 5th-6th grade teams won! We're looking for a repeat!  
The Battle is ON!!
