Battle of the Books (K-2)
Lakeview Elementary, Little Elm, TX
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
I will be using this reading list for our Battle of the Books (BOB) in K-2. The 2x2 books will be read/discussed during their library class; however, I will be needing parents' support on this. Our library has only one copy of each 2 x 2 title, so you may want to check out from the public library for these titles for your child to read AGAIN or for you to read to your child. The more your child is exposed to these books, the more he/she will be more familiar with them and will be more ready for the competition. Every child in K-2 will be given a chance to participate in the elimination round. To monitor their reading progress, we will be using this BOOT paper. After I read a 2x2 book to them, they may color the section with the title at home.
In addition to the 20 2x2 books, 2nd grade will also be reading two chapter books:
- Maybelle in the Soup by Katie Speck
- Tornado by Betsy Byars
The Battle of the Books will be a grade level competition: kinder, first and second grade will each have a champion. Type and level of difficulty of questions will depend on the grade level. Grade level champions will be awarded a trophy.
Teachers and parents, thank you in advance for any support you can give our students for this fun competition! I look forward to awarding those trophies to our first BOB champions in K-2.
Date: Week of April 13 (during library class)
