Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for 4th and 5th graders at Parsley. The purpose is to encourage students to read good books and have fun while doing it. Students will read from a pre-selected list of books . They should keep a summary of each book they read with title, author, setting, main characters, and main idea of the book.

In January, students that have read a sufficient number of books will be eligible to be on a team. A team will be three to five students. Reading will continue on the remainder of the books. These students will also have the opportunity to practice for the "Battle", discuss authors, share favorite passages, work on vocabulary and other book related events.

The "Battle" will take place in in the spring. Students earn points by answering questions about the books.
