The Battle of the Books is a wonderful reading incentive program for students in grades 4-6. A state committee of librarians has compiled a list of 30 books. Teams of students will read and compete against each other by answering comprehensive questions based on those books. Students must agree upon and offer up their answers as a group, which emphasizes teamwork rather than individual ability. To prepare for this competition, students are expected to read and test on a minimum of 15 books with 80% accuracy.
Books are available in the school library or Mrs. Madden’s room for checkout. We will begin practice on November 2 at lunch in Mrs. Madden’s room, 16. In March, five students will be chosen to represent Miguelito at the county competition. The county Battle of the Books is in Santa Barbara is on April 16, 2016.
Please contact Mrs. Madden if you have any questions.
Participation is voluntary but encouraged!!!
