Battle of the Books

Spread the Love of Reading

Battle of the Books Literacy Club is a great event at Greenwood for 4th and 5th grade students that starts with teams being formed in the fall of each year. 


The Battle of the Books  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.
