Beginning in the 2016-17 school year, Granite School District’s elementary library media program is sponsoring a Battle of the Books reading incentive program. Students at participating schools will be challenged to read as many books as possible from the book list assigned to their grade level. Participating students will form into teams to engage in a “Family Feud” style competition at the school level, testing their knowledge of the books. Winning school teams will move on to a district-wide battle. So far, 15 elementary schools have committed to field teams and participate in the battle.
More details are forthcoming, and the following page will serve as the main location for updated information and resources: https://www.granitemedia.org/granite-battle-of-the-books/. If you wish to get your school involved or have any other questions, please contact Nikki Gregerson, Granite School District’s Elementary Library Media Specialist.
