Battle of the Books

Spread the Love of Reading

Battle of the Books Literacy Club will return to Greenwood for 4th and 5th grade students next fall, and groups will start being made this spring.


The Battle of the Books Literacy Club is designed to encourage elementary students to: ● Read quality literature. ● Read in their leisure time. ● Read for information as well as pleasure.


Students work collaboratively over the course of 10 study sessions to discuss the books and respond to questions about plot, characters, setting and theme.  At the end of the 10 sessions, student teams will compete against one another at our school-wide Battle of the Books competition.
