Calling students in grades 3-5 who love to read!
The Battle of the Books promotes a love of reading by encouraging students to read a list of 10 books in a variety of genres and dealing with a wide range of themes and topics. Students are challenged to remember information about the plots, characters, and settings of the books. Not all of the books may be appropriate for all students.
Students must read at least four of the books to be eligible to participate. We will have a Kirkwood Elementary Battle of the Books in April where each school will bring two teams of students. Ten students will then be chosen to represent North Glendale in the St. Louis Area Book Battle in May. These events will take place during the school day with transportation provided. If students are interested in participating, they just need to start reading the books and doing their best to remember the important details. Information is available in Schoology in their “Library” course and I have been sharing the information with them weekly during their library time.
If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Fogle at
