Battle of the Books 

Battle of the Books is a program in which 4th and 5th grade students form teams of five.  Each member of the team reads one or more of the books.  Then in May teams compete by answering a series of questions about the books. The team with the most points moves to the next round.





Illinois Reading Award Programs

Students in grades K-5 are excited to be reading books for the Illinois reading award programs.  There are 2 awards at the elementary level and each award has 20 nominated books.  Boys and girls in 1st – 3rd grades are listening to their teacher read Monarch nominees.  If they read/listen to 5 stories they can vote for their favorite. Students in grades 3-5 are reading the Bluestem Award nominees.  They need to listen to or read 4 titles in order to vote.  Voting for both of the awards will take place on February 22, 2019 in the Media Center.
