Congratulations to all our 4th/5th Grade Battle of the Books participants!
Battle of the Books Competition on April 5 from 1:45-3:45 in the Cafeteria. All are welcome to watch!!
Please come to support our 4th and 5th grade Battle of the Books contestants as they compete in three events: Family Feud, a written competition, and a relay. These students have been going above and beyond! They meet before school twice a month, and have read at least 12 of 36 chapter books to be able to compete in the school-wide event.
The winner of the Washington competition will go on to compete at the District competition on April 26.
We’d love to have volunteers and people there to cheer the students on. If you are interested in volunteering please contact: Jencole36@gmail.com
BATTLE of the BOOKS!
4th and 5th Graders: (3rd Graders, please scroll down)
The Battle of the Books is an exciting tournament of reading. It’s a national organization, that the RBUSD participates in at a district level. Washington Elementary competitors will be assigned to teams of 4th and 5th graders. On the day of the Battle, teams of students will answer questions about the books on the reading list to win points for their team.
4th/5th Grade Battle of the Books will meet two times a month on Wednesday mornings before school from 7:45 – 8:15 a.m.
We realize this is the same time as Running Club, and will work with your student if they would like to do both.
The 4th and 5th grade School Battle will be held on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 after school.
One team from each school advances to the District Championship Battle. The Championship Battle will be held on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 6 p.m. at Lincoln Elementary School.
There are 36 books on the book list. You do not need to read all 36 books, but you need to read at least 12 books on the list to compete.
The book list is available in the library, has been passed out in each 4th/5th grade classes, and is available by clicking here. Each student is encouraged to read as many books as possible to be most prepared for the Battle.
Washington students took 2nd place at the District level last year!!
If you wish to participate in the Battle, attached form to your teacher ASAP.
Looking for some eager readers to go a few rounds in the 3rd Grade Battle of the Books!
The 3rd Grade Battle of the Books is an exciting tournament of reading. Students read books throughout the year and come together in the spring to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of the books they have read in a fun, interactive and lively “battle” event.
There are 14 books on the 3rd grade book list. Students do not need to read all 14 books but they do need to read at least seven books on the list to compete in the Battle. Each student is encouraged to read as many books as possible to be most prepared for the Battle. The 3rd grade book list is available in the office, library, and by clicking here.
The Battle will be held after school, the week of March 20th, location and date to be determined.
