Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is an extracurricular ongoing book club where students in grades 3-5 read 9 books chosen by a select group of teacher-librarians.  In January the students practice answering questions about the books.  The 4 grade 3/4  and 4 grade 5 students who answer the most questions correctly become the battle teams for our school.  Our teams continue to practice and then go on to the district battle at the end of April.
