Battle of the Books

REGISTRATION FOR BATTLE OF THE BOOKS EXTENDED UNTIL JANUARY 5TH, 2015!

 

Are you a 5th grader who likes to read and likes to compete? Then do we have a great program for you. Battle of the Books! Any 5th grader who lives in Romeo, Washington or Bruce or attends Romeo Community Schools may get together a team and an adult leader and sign up. Teams size will be determined in September.

  • Team leaders sign up the individuals on each team and their team name. Teams are comprised of 3 – 5 fifth graders.
  • The four books in the battle will be given to the team leader.
  • Teams are encouraged, but not required, to use the library to meet periodically throughout the winter/spring.  Don’t forget that the Kezar Library has two group study rooms!
  • The battle will commence with random questions pulled from the books. Answers are in title/author form. The types of questions will be: A direct quote from a character; A question or statement about something that happens in a book; A passage taken directly from a book; A question about something from an illustration or picture.
  • Example: A direct quote from one of the characters. Question – “I think we have to get out of here.” Answer – Doll Bones by Holly Black.
  • Prizes for each 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

Adult leader meeting is scheduled for November 17, 2014 at 6:30 pm at the Graubner Library.
