The EY team is so excited for Battle of the Books! We are looking forward to having a traditional BOTB competition in addition to several other activities where kids will be recognized and celebrated for their love of reading!
A few things to keep in mind…
- All students in grades 3-6 are welcome to participate!
- It’s not too late to start reading for Battle of the Books! Students in 3rd grade need to read 5 books and students in 4th-6th grade need to read 10 books.
- An activity needs to be completed for each book. There is a video on how to add your activities to your Keynote. Click here to watch the video.
- To prepare for BOTB, you can meet with friends before school, during lunch, or after school to talk about the books you’re reading. Feel free to share your activities and projects. There are tons of resources (sample questions, links to authors’ websites, book trailers, etc.) on our wiki @ http://tinyurl.com/
We have an exciting day planned for Friday, March 13. You will work in teams to answer questions about the books (traditional BOTB style). You will also compete individually. BONUS: We have 3 authors from the book list lined up to Skype with us!
