Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a reading competition open to all fourth and fifth graders. Students begin by reading at least 5 of the current year's Intermediate Young Hoosier Books. Once you finish reading a book, fill out the YHBA Reading Response Form). The more books you read, the better chance you give your team and the more rewards you can earn!

In January, students form teams with three to five members. This year, teams  of students need to be formed with other students from their homeroom classes.  Each team decides who will read which books; the more books each member reads, the better chance you give your team.

After spring break, teams are placed into a single elimination bracket and compete during their specials time. The winning team in each grade level will enjoy a pizza party in the Media Center.

Students must read at least 5 books to participate in Battle of the Books, but are encouraged to read more.

Students will need to fill out  YHBA reading response form each time they complete a book.
