BATTLE OF THE BOOKS
Weller Program Information:
What is Battle of the Books?
Battle of the Books is a statewide reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Alaska Association of School Librarians. The goal of the program is to improve reading and comprehension while building enthusiasm for reading using a fun and unique competition format. Students will compete in teams to demonstrate their knowledge of the preselected books.
Who can compete?
Students in grades 3-6.
*At our school we have 2ndgrade participate at the school level to prepare them for district battle as an older student.
How will the teams be formed?
Students are encouraged to form their own teams consisting of 3 members. I will help students find a team if necessary.
When will students/teams practice?
At the beginning of October a day of the week will be selected for students to meet in the Library during their recess time. Students are encouraged to keep a Battle of the Books notebook/ folder with notes about each book, author & title flashcards as well as practice questions.
