The Battle of the Books is a fun, team oriented motivational reading program designed to encourage and recognize students’ reading abilities, broaden their reading interests, and increase their reading comprehension. Teams work together to read a variety of books of different reading levels and topics, then prepare for the big day...a quiz-show “battle” to test their comprehension and team spirit.
The book list is available in the school office and a kick-off/coach’s meeting will be held at the Plainwell Performing Arts Center Lobby, Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 7pm. There will be a raffle for a free book for those who attend!
