Battle of the Books
News for Week 1
Your child does not need to read all of the books!
Your child should know which books he or she is responsible for reading.
His or Her books should be read by December 10th.
Ways you can be supporting your student...
- Make sure he or she is reading! Students should be onto their second book by now, help your child be a team player by encouraging him or her to read every night.
- Ask your child what he or she read about each night. Students need to remember details in order to answer questions in our weekly team quizzes.
- Quiz your child on book titles and their corresponding authors. Students get points on their quizzes for remembering both the title and author.
