Looking for books for your 3rd-6th grader to read over the summer? Try reading from our Battle of the Books lists and prepare for next year!
If you are not familiar with the Battle of the Books program, students who have signed up are divided into teams and will work together to read all the books on the program booklist. The school library has several copies of each book on the list for students to take turns reading. They can also check them out from the Provo City Library, Sora, or online. Students may read these books in any format – online or physical books – as well as listen to them as an audiobook or have them read to them by a parent.
The students on each team will work together to read all of the books on their assigned booklist to begin competing in January. Teams will compete against each other to answer questions about the books and earn points until we have one 3rd/4th-grade team and one 5th/6th-grade team for the school. Those two teams will then compete against other elementary schools in a district-level competition in April.
This program is so much fun and students at any reading level can participate because the books range from easy picture books to harder chapter books. Students really enjoy competing and it really helps students with reading comprehension– as they have to understand the material in the books in order to answer the questions properly. program this year! If they’ve read some of the books over the summer, they’ll have a head start!
