Dewar Book Clubs
Newbery Book Club -
The Newbery Book Club is open to fourth and fifth grade students. To become a member of the Newbery Club, students must read and pass quizzes or complete book reports on ten Newbery Medal Award books during the school year.
The Newbery Medal Award is given annually to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.
Students who complete the requirements, will have their names added to the Newbery Club perpetual plaques found in the display case of the Media Center. A certificate and prizes will also be awarded at the end of the year.
Battle of the Books -
In the Battle of the Books Club, students must read ten books assigned by the Media Specialist and complete a slide show which must include details about each book. Members are chosen based on STAR Test scores, teacher recommendation, and behavior. After reading the books, students compete against one another in teams where they answer comprehension questions about the books.
