BFA has been participating in the Douglas County Library “Battle of the Books” program since the 2014/15 school year. We have a third/fourth grade team and a fifth/sixth grade team. Each team has to read ten books and be able to answer detailed questions about each of them during the battles. We have done very well in the battles over the years but have noticed the exceptional schools have the help of a lot of parent volunteers.
We are looking for anyone who would be willing to read at least ONE of the assigned books for the third/fourth grade team or fifth/sixth grade team and write as many questions as you can think of about the books.
We have copies of the books at the school and sample questions that we can give you. These books don’t take long to read and anyone participating in this volunteer activity will receive volunteer hours for your family. This is a great way for those who can’t come to the school to get your hours at home. You do NOT have to have a family member on the team or in those grade levels – just a willingness to help!
We would like to inundate these kids with questions so there isn’t any part of the book they haven’t reviewed. The teams begin practice in late November and battles will begin in February.
We would love to have your questions submitted by the last week of November. However, we will continually accept questions for practice after this time.
