2019-2020 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 will take place on Thursday and Friday, March 19-20. The top (4) teams will return on the second day to compete in the finals for a chance to represent Vanderburg. The Regional competition will take place on  Friday, April 17th at a school to be determined!    

Thank you in advance to the parents, teachers, and staff for supporting our children and helping to keep their LOVE of reading!  They are already winners!
