Battle of the Books

Bart Underhill
Meeting Time/Location
3:15-4:15 Every Tuesday in the Library

Battle of the Books is a program designed to allow students to participate in reading books as a team and then competing against other teams to find out who has the ability to recall the most information from the books. Students will have an opportunity  to read and enjoy books with a group of their peers while working collaboratively to prepare for a "Battle of the Books" competition in May. This year Behlau will compete against Cody, Evers, Locke Hill, Braun Station and Leick Elementaries. More information will be sent home regarding the final competition. The goal of this program is to make reading fun and exciting for students while offering them a safe and competitive academic environment. Please understand that this is a competitive program for students who are independent readers for they will need to read several books in a short amount of time.

If your child is interested in being a part of Behlau's Battle of the Book Club, please compete the form found in the Front office. Students will be selected based on behavior, grades, and school attendance. Nominations for the club are for 3rd - 5th Grade students.
