Battle of the Books is a nationwide, “college bowl” style reading competition for grades 4 & 5. Students form teams (maximum of 5 students on a team) where each member reads 3-5 books from this year’s list (there are 15 books in all).


The 2020 - 2021 Battle didn´t happen, so we are SO excited to bring it back this year!

  • Team sign ups are NEXT WEEK, NOVEMBER 15 - 19.

  • After Winter Break, weĺl have weekly book discussions, and practice “battles” at recess.

  • In March, we will have a grade-level “battle off” to see who is our school winner, and at the end of April, our best team from each grade will participate in a Summit-wide Championship!
