Third through fifth grade students at Legacy Elementary delved into a creative way to learn about this year’s Battle of the Books book list.
Students had the opportunity to hear a short summary of each book read aloud. After, they cycled through tables where they checked out the cover art, read excepts, and got a feel for each of the novels. Lastly, they rated each book according to their interest level.
Interventionist and Battle of the Books Coach Megan Green says this program has been especially helpful to third grade students who have never participated in Battle of the Books.
“This is the first time we’ve hosted a book tasting, and it’s really catching their interest and getting their excitement up!” said Green.
Battle of the Books will be held in spring 2019.
