SFX students in grades 4-6 will have an opportunity to participate in Battle of the Books, a literary trivia game. Again this school year, we will play an interscholastic game with two other area schools, Roycemore and Chiaravalle.
When we return from winter break, more information will be made available to students regarding how teams will be formed and how to earn a slot on the team. Until that time, this is the list of the Battle of the Books titles that students will need to read before our interscholastic game takes place in March, 2021.
At this time, it is likely the competition will be a virtual one. If students wish to be considered for the SFX Battle of the Books team, they are encouraged to read all the books on the list as that is the best way to prepare for the competition.
Books on the list were carefully chosen by the librarians at each of the three schools. The books are a balance of reading levels with a variety of plots, genres, and interests, including fiction and non-fiction. These books are available in the school library and are readily available at our local area public libraries.
We are hoping to have a separate competition for our 7th-8th grade students but nothing is finalized at this time. More details will be forthcoming as they become available. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have!
