Battle of the Books
America's Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program designed for students in grades 3-12. The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers.
At SVF students in grades 4 & 5 participate in this program. They read books and work as teams to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of the books they have read.
The competitions are similar in style to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competition.
The students are encouraged to use the team blogs to discuss the books and share strategy.
