Battle of the Books!
5th-8th grade (5/6th grade teams, 7/8th grade teams, separate book lists)
Teams of 4-7 students are forming now! Students are creating their own teams to compete against each other in our February Battle at the school. Teams will divide up the 21 titles (one title is an online book) amongst themselves, with the hope that each book will be read by at least 2 team members. They need to create questions from the books they read in order to quiz one another. Teams meet with me on Tuesdays in the Library for practices. The winning teams will compete in our city competition on April 17, 2010.
Parental involvement is highly encouraged! Read the books and create questions for our teams and for the competition. Question examples: In what book did Samantha lose her keys? or In the book, Inkheart, what was the father's name?

Six Flags- Great America
This reading incentive program (Jan-Feb) encourages our students to read 6 hours in order to earn a free ticket to Great America in Gurnee!
