Battle of the Books Competition

Battle of the Books is a club which we have in the library to promote literacy and the love of reading.  The middle school students participate during their lunches once a week to read and discuss the books they have read from the 2015 Rebecca Caudill Collection. There were 24 – 34 students who participated throughout the year.  Students formulated teams and discussed which books they would read from the collection.
We have two teams for each grade level — (6th, 7th and 8th).   Battle of the Book Championship was held Friday where the grade levels competed against each other.  The final teams within MSN who competed were the 6th grade vs. 8th grade.  The 8th graders were the Champions this year.  We celebrated with a pizza party afterwards and each student was awarded a book from the Scholastic Book Fair.
