What is Battle of the Books?
Battle of the Books is a reading enrichment activity offered through the Tonasket Elementary Library. It is open to all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. The goal is to encourage children to read a wide variety of books that they may not discover otherwise, in a fun and interactive format. Participation is not a requirement for all students, only voluntary.

How will Battle of the Books work?
Students at Tonasket Elementary who would like to participate will be asked to register as part of a team from now until Sept. 29th (signed permission forms are due on this date). A reading list is attached. Books will be distributed from the elementary library media center as soon as students turn in their permission form. The books can also be checked out through the public library. Grade-level competitions will take place during each Wednesday at lunch recess starting in January and ending in April.

Students can talk about books with their teammates whenever they see each other. As students read books, taking notes or filling out a story map can help them think about important things from their reading.

What books are on the reading list?
A reading list (including book levels and author name) is attached.

Do I need to read all 12 books?
There are 12 books. You are encouraged to read as many of the books on the list as you can. You will be part of a team of 3, 4, or 5 students. Teams can split up the book titles to read, but the more titles you can read, the stronger your team will be. Each person will have the responsibility to read his or her fair share of books for the team (no fewer than 4 books).

What if I have already read some of the books?
You will be a much stronger team member if you can read them again!
