During the 2020-21 school year, students from grades 3-6 at North Point Elementary will have the opportunity to participate in Battle of the Books, a voluntary reading incentive program that encourages careful reading of quality books in a variety of genres. Students read specific books throughout the year and compete as teams in quiz-show style battles in the spring.
BOB is a national program (http://www.battleofthebooks.org/) in which the Alpine School District actively participates. The district encourages its schools to participate as well, including inviting winning 3rd/4th and 5th/6th grade teams to represent their schools at a district championship each year.
If you are interested in participating (and we hope you are!, the 20 books we will be reading are listed below. Keep in mind, because you will be a member of a team, you will not need to read all the books yourself. Happy reading!
“These are the current book lists that we will be using for the school year 2020-2021. The national company that runs Battle of the Books sometimes changes titles throughout the summer. Please start with the books your student is excited to read and I will update with any changes. Thanks!”
