How does it work?
Teams of 4 students from 5th and 6th grade read the pre-selected novels and compete for prizes in the "Battle of the Books." Teams that answer the most questions correctly will be crowned winners.
How many books do I have to read?
There are 6 pre-selected novels, but decide with your teammates who reads what books. Read the books at your leisure time. Come to the meetings to review the books together. Possible meeting times-- SOAR or after school.
Battle of the Books promote a love of reading , expose students to titles and authors that they might not encounter in school and to inspire teamwork and good sportsmanship in an atmosphere of friendly competition.
