Sunshine State Young  Reader Awards  are for students to engage in the love of reading! This list of books is used for the Pinellas County Battle of the Books. At Walsingham Elementary, students earn charms when they have completed a book and show comprehension with a graphic organizer, summary, Reading Counts quiz, book review, or other approved evidence of comprehension. Then, at the end of January, Mrs. Glass will start meeting with students who have shown evidence of comprehension during lunch once a week to review the books and prepare for the Battle of the Books. Students will form teams to practice answering comprehension questions similar to a quiz bowl. We will have a school battle to determine which team to go on to the district battle at Saint Petersburg College.
