Battle of the Books
2020-2021 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's Battle of the Book School Competition has been placed on HOLD due to Covid-19 and the move to Distance Learning until further notice. The books are available to check out from our school library (once curbside pickup resumes). (5) sets of books were funded through Donor's Choose by generous friends and families, past and present. Thank you so much!
