• Cheatham and Lindsey Battling With Books 


    This year, Cheatham and Lindsey will be having our annual Battling With Books competition.  We are very excited to provide this opportunity for our third through sixth grade students!  


    The students will have until March to read 7 books that have been selected for their grade level. All books will be available for checkout in the library or you can find copies at the Allen Public or Mckinney Public Libraries.  Throughout the year students will be participating in online discussions using Google Classroom, which is an educational social media platform provided by our district. I will be meeting one day with the teams in October  to go over expectations and Google Classroom. 


    We will hold a campus competition which will consist of a timed team test over questions from the books read throughout the year. This will decide which team will move on to compete against the Lindsey Elementary school winner. The championship round between both school winners will be held in March through a Skype session. The winning teams from each school will have their name and picture displayed on a bulletin board in the library. They will also get to keep the trophy until the next competition!
