Battle of the Books


For those of you who are unfamiliar with Battle of the Books, it is an exciting “tournament of reading.” Our 4th and 5th grade students are provided with a list of 36 book titles and are encouraged to read at least 15 books in order to join their fellow qualifying readers in a battle to answer questions about what they have read.

By spring 2021, those who have read at least 15 titles from the list will first compete in our own school battle. The winning team will then go on to represent Alta Vista in a district battle against 5 other Redondo Schools: Madison, Jefferson, Lincoln, Birney, and Beryl.

This program is completely voluntary and should be looked at as a new and fun way to experience great literature. There are no tests, reports or assignments due! Just remember that reading is one of the best ways to relax and enjoy the weekends break!
