Title: Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books
  • Start your engines!

This power point was originally
created by Lucy Drenka, a librarian in Carroll
ISD, who introduced me to
Battle of the Books. I have altered this power
point and the reading program to
fit to the needs of my students, and you are
welcome to do the same.
Under the hood…
  • You will be placed on a team with a captain. You
    will become the expert on 2 books from the list
    of 5 Battle books.
  • For each of those two books, you will write a
    summary and a detail question over each chapter.
    These will be for reading grades.
  • Read all 5 books to earn yourself a spot in the
    winners circle at the end! (You only have to
    write questions for the extra books!)

Team Sponsors
  • As a team, you will choose a team name. Your
    team will make a banner to represent your team in
    the battles. You may also dress up and bring
    props to add some team spirit. Here are just a
    few examples of names in the past
  • Saturday Knight Fever
  • Battling Book Worms
  • Chapter Champs

What is a Battle?
  • Here is how the actual battles work
  • For each book, your team will have 10 seconds to
    answer a question correctly and earn 3 points.
    This is your teams GIVEN question.
  • If your team answers incorrectly, or does not
    answer within 10 seconds you dont lose any
    points, but a bell will sound and another team
    may answer for 1 point.

Rev those engines…
  • The competition continues with a round of POP-UP
    questions. The first team that signals in with
    their remote gets to answer the question. If
    your team gets it correct, you earn 2 points.
    HOWEVER…… If your team answers incorrectly, you
    will lose 2 points.

In the pit….
  • Remember …the team that works together and cheers
    each other on toward the finish has a better
    chance of being winners!
  • Everyone on the team is very important!

First Lap
  • We will visit the library for your first round of
    Class Battles where you will compete against the
    other teams in your reading class.
  • Since this is the first battle, you will learn
    the strengths and weaknesses of your team and
    hopefully make a plan to do even better in the
    next battle! You will probably see which books
    you need to review the most before the next

Second Lap…
  • Then we will visit the library and have a second
    round of Class Battles!
  • Hopefully every team is prepared to answer
    questions about the books because they will be
    more difficult.
  • We will add the scores from Class Battles round 1
    and 2 to see which team goes on to represent your
    class in the Team Battle.

Third Lap…
  • We will visit the cafeteria for the third round
    of battle (Team Battle) between the winners of
    each class on your 6th grade team.
  • The Champs and Runner-ups (top two teams with the
    highest scores) from 6-1 and 6-2 will go on to
    compete in the Final Battle!
  • Competition is getting tougher, and so are the
    questions. Know those books!!

Victory Lap!
  • The grandstands are packed! Everyone (the entire
    6th grade) is in the cafeteria cheering the 6-1
    and 6-2 Team Champs and Runner-ups on to victory
    during the Final Battle!

The Winners Circle
  • What is the Winners Circle?
  • Answer The After-Battle Party
  • (that you get out of class to go to)
  • Who goes to it?
  • Answer 6-1 and 6-2 Team Champs,
  • Runner-ups, and anyone who read
  • all 5 books!

Other Awards Given
  • We will also be observing from the very beginning
    until the very end of this exciting program to
    see who will earn the following
  • Top-Reading Class the class that has the
    highest average of books read
  • Spirit Awards teams that show great attitudes,
    teamwork, creativity w/ costume props, etc.
  • Outstanding Students the boy and girl from
    6-1 and 6-2 that seem to give 110 in the areas
    of attitude, teamwork, and effort
