Battle of the Books

Grades 3-5

America’s Battle of the Books invites schools across the country to join in a reading incentive program that combines exceptional literature with friendly competition.

The Battle is a tournament in which teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the list in the form of, “In which book…”. After the question is read, each team will then discuss the answer, write the title and author on a paper, and pass it on to the judges. **Spelling will count only in the event of a tie.**

At the end of the battle, points are tallied and a winning team is declared.

The Battle will be held at Elm Street School during the school day on Friday, December 15.
