Battle of the Books 2019-2020

Thank you for your help this year encouraging kids to read and participate in the Battle of the Books. The Battle of the Books is a reading challenge for students in 3rd ​- 6th grade. They are encouraged to read from a list of 20 books chosen by librarians around the district and, if they read at least three, participate in a school trivia competition. Winners of the school trivia competition will compete at the district level on March 3rd

Rose Park overall had strong participation for our first year, with room to grow. Students will be receiving their final prizes, and Mr. Martinez's class has earned a donut party for reading the most books as a class (54!). Ms. Ruiz's class will also win a special prize for coming in 2nd with 38 books...a huge feat for 3rd grade! Andrea Holguin, 3rd grade, receives special mention for reading the most battle books in the school coming in at a whopping 13 books.

A few interesting statistics:

  • Collectively, students in 3rd-6th read 163 books from our Battle list. 
  • 64 students participated (at least those who took the initiative to turn in their reading). This included 33 boys and 31 girls. 
  • The most popular title was The Cardboard Kingdom, a graphic novel about cosplay, friendship, and family. It was followed by the picture book biography of Carlos Santana called When Angels Sing
  • The most popular chapter book was a novel in verse called Rebound, about a boy who loses his father and heals with family and basketball.
