The Battle of the Books is a fun way to get students to
read a variety of books and learn to comprehend what they are reading. It is a
great way to promote recreational reading.
The program is a "quiz bowl" type of game in which teams try to identify titles, content and authors of the 15 Sunshine State Young Readers Award titles. Questions are based on plots, settings and characters.
This program is introduced to student in grades 3 - 5 by Mrs. Gramlich and the classroom teacher. Participating students are then given several months to read the 15 titles and quiz each other on what they have read. Qualifying tests are given during the months of February and March and teams will be formed. A school battle and subsequent regional/district battles are in May. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or Mrs. Gramlich.
