Battle of the Books Information - The "Battle" will be in May
America's Battle of the Books is a national reading incentive program for students designed to encourage students to read selected books and have fun while competing with peers. All fourth grade classes at Conley are participating in this “battle”. While working on a common goal, the students will be reading quality literature. Each member of the team will have an individual list that they will be choosing books from to read. Students can read these books both at school and home. When they finish reading the book they will take notes on the book so they can share what they have learned with their team mates. If they do read all of the books on their own list, they can begin reading some of the other books. Each team is responsible for knowing about all the books, so the more they read, the more they can answer on the day of the battle. Teamwork and increased reading are the goals of this program.
The culminating activity is a fun filled day of competition. This game show format activity will show what the students know about the books that they have read. Each team will be asked questions about the characters, setting and plot of each book. The teams can even earn extra points if they know the authors of the books! We are very excited to be able to continue this reading incentive program. Let the battle begin!
