The reindeer went on strike! We wrote letters to Santa from the point of view of the reindeer with our requests for Santa. Their personality sure did shine through in the writing. We also focused on action and linking verbs this week.
Battle of the Books
Welcome to America’s Battle of the Books!
What is America’s Battle of the Books?
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. Before they begin reading, they will need to approve the book with their teacher. When they finish reading the book they will take notes on the book so they can share what they have learned with their teammates. 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!
