Battle of the Books
2022-2023 Battle of the Books Committee
The Battle of the Books is a district wide program that gets students reading and competing with other 4th and 5th grade students from other schools. It begins with a committee of teachers and staff that select books appropriate for this age level. Students spend time reading 8 books and preparing for a variety of specifically detailed questions about each of the books. Students spend time meeting weekly or every other week with a selection of Vanderburg teachers to discuss the books. After the readings, the schools conduct their own competitions consisting of 2 initial rounds, a semi-finals round, followed by the finals to determine the one team of 4 to send to the district's regional competition. This year we will participating in the regional competition.
