Battle of the Books
Consider joining the Battle of the Books! You’ll get to choose from a list of 20 great books and discuss the books over lunch with friends and a library supervisor during your lunch hour once a week. If you like, you can choose to take part in the final online state competition sponsored by WEMTA (Wisconsin Educational Media and Technology Association) during the week of February 24, 2018. You also may also visit the WEMTA site at: https://sites.google.com/wemta.org/battle/home?scrlybrkr=c042eb93 .
“The statewide Battle of the Books program is designed to promote a love of reading among our students. It encourages students to read a variety of books and remember information about the plots, characters, and settings of the books. Every question asked in a battle is answered by the title and author of the book and takes the form of: Name the book in which a horse and a boy are stranded on an island. It is a fun, academic-based competition that has been very successful in school districts throughout the state in encouraging students to read.”
