SSYRA Book Club

Battle of the Books is a national reading program.  The goal of the program is to support students in their love and discovery of reading by introducing them to quality literature and to develop friendships between students based on socialization, competition, and mutual respect.

What does that look like?
We will spend the semester reading and reviewing the books on our list in an engaging and fun way to prepare the kids to compete at a district-wide battle based on those books. 
***many students start reading some of the books in the summer.

Our Meetings will begin in January and will be held every second and fourth Monday right after school.  During these practices, we will review the books read on the book list by discussion and games.  The meetings will end at 5 pm. Parents will pick students up at the front of the school by the office or students will take the activity bus.

Reading - The kids will read on their own time.  Since the battle is at the end of the year, we suggest the kids take simple notes throughout each book - either on post-its in the book or a separate sheet of paper if reading digitally - just as a way to reinforce what they have read and help them remember key points of the books.  This is a skill they can use throughout their education.
