Battle of the Books Information
Please consider joining the most awesome group at Micro Elementary! Students in 4th and 5th grade are welcome to join! Students are expected to read at LEAST half of the books on the list. We have practices weekly and attend a competition usually in March. During practices we will discuss the books they have read. Students are also expected to make at least 80% on short quizzes about the books they read. As they finish reading books, students work on gaining points by answering questions about the books. It promotes friendly competition with each other. :)
The Battle of the books team will meet every Monday from 8:00 - 8:45 in the Media Center beginning October 17th. This is subject to change pending the school schedule for 2018-2019. Students will be given a bookmark of the list of titles and authors that they should begin memorizing. There are 15 books on the list this year. The competition is usually in March.
Understand that I can only take 12 students to the competition. At our practices students will be taking comprehension tests as they finish the books. They receive points for their results. To be fair, the top 12 students will be the ones that go to the competition. Alternates will be named if a student is unable to go. If a student is having difficulty with behavior in the classroom or at practices, I will speak with the parent and adminstration about the possibility of them being removed from the team.
