2021-2022 Battle of the Books Committee
Google Meet Parent Meeting on 9/23 @3:30 PM

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 only have a school competition. No official information has been given for a regional competition. 


Thank you to our donors for funding (4) of each book for our library. We can't thank you enough for your support with literacy and the love and appreciation of books!

You may complete an interest form here, view the book selections, and print out a parent permission form if you have discussed the commitment with your parent/guardian. The parent permission form needs to be turned in if you decide to participate.
