Battle of the Books - UPDATE !!!

This happens every year... ;) 

There has been two changes with the 3-4th and 5-6th grade list. 
*Nim's Island has been moved to the 5-6th grade list. 
*Brothers at Bat: The True Story of an Amazing All-Brother Baseball Team has been moved to the 3-4th grade list.
I will be hosting a "BOOK CLUB" this school year in addition to the regular battles that will take place in the Spring. This will be a different kind of book club. I will only be holding a POST book club gathering after school. This is optional and any student that would like to read the book may attend. We will be doing an activity related to the book, book talk, and an afternoon treat. The first book will be "Because of Winn-Dixie" and "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library." The first book club gathering will be  November 7st (3-4th) & November 14th (5-6th). The book should be read by this date for students participating with the book club.

I have selected 3 book titles from the Battle of the Books 3-4th grade / 5-6th grade list.

Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
