Battle of the Books

The Battle of the Books club is for 5th grade students.  In years when there are not enough participation from 5th graders, it will be offered to 4th grade as well.  Members of the club will meet for an hour (2:30 - 3:25) twice a week from November to May.  Students are asked to read at least 5 of a set of 10 books and 10 write questions for the books they read.  Questions come in the format of “In which book did…” During the meetings we discuss how to write questions, explore the books and themes, and participate in practice battles.  At the end, the winning team from our school will go to the District Battles to compete against other schools across the district.
