Battle of the Books


This is an optional program for our upper elementary students.  Students form a team of one to three people and then as a team, they read the books that are on the Battle of the Books list. In late spring, the grade level Book Battles take place.  This involves a Jeopardy-style game with the categories of:  plot, genre, tricky, character and setting. This friendly competition encourages students to explore books they might not otherwise read and builds community around shared reading experiences. The books for The Battle of the Books are available in the Ray library, on Sora, and through the Howe Library
