What is Battle of the Books?
Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for students in grades 3-12. The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers.
How Does A Student Participate?
A student participates by reading from the book list provided for that year's Battle of the Books. Students may count "books" they have read before. However, they cannot count books that they have only seen on a video or a movie. They must read the book. They should keep a summary so they can review this information before heir "Local Battle."
Where Do The Students Get The Books?
Centennial library has copies of each book on the list. Come to the library to check out.
What Is The "Battle?"
A typical "Battle" is a tournament or game, like College Bowl or Family Feud, in which students' teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the book lists. Students will be told where to go for the first round of the "Battle." They play several rounds, each against a different team. At the end of the battles points are totaled and the two teams with the most points are invited to participate in our District 6 Battle of the Books, where they will compete against other teams from across the district.
How Does It Benefit The Child?
The students gain knowledge and enjoyment from reading good books, learn to work as a team, and have a fun time of competing in the "Battle."
