Battle of the Books


2017-2018 Battle of the Books

Welcome to Clyde Elementary’s Battle of the Books! We are so excited this year to compete in this wonderful program that allows our students to come together and demonstrate their knowledge and love for literacy!  This program is offered to our fabulous fourth and fifth grade students, and will take place over the course of several months with signups and tryouts beginning in April 2017 and the final competition scheduled in March of 2018.  This reading program is designed to promote a love of reading and encourages the participants to explore a variety of literary genres with lots of fun integrated along the way!  If you think you may be interested in joining our AMAZING team this year, please see Mrs. Wantz in the library to obtain more information!

Students will be asked to read all of the 18 books listed below.  Students should also take notes for each book, as I will require a quiz or assignment for each book.  2-3 teams of students in Grades 4 and 5 will be selected for the Clyde Elementary Battle of the Books team in the Fall of 2017 based on student writing and the student’s ability to demonstrate comprehension and recall of details.  A maximum of 12 students, but a minimum of 6 students, can be selected for the team.  For more information, please visit the North Carolina Elementary Battle of the Books website here.  Any additional questions can be directed toward the Clyde Elementary Battle of the Books Team Coaches: Mrs. Wantz, Mrs. Underwood, and Mrs. Hyett.
