The Battle of the Books is a fun way for students to read a variety of books and learn to comprehend what they are reading.
The elementary program is for students in grades 3-5. Participating students are given four months to read the 15 titles and quiz each other on what they have read. Qualifying tests are given during the month of December. School battles and subsequent regional battles determine which schools will be represented at the district battle in February. The first-place team carries home a traveling trophy to house at their school until the next year's battle. For more information on the SSYRA 3-5 books click here
