“Battle of the Books” Book Club

Salt Lake City School District is holding their second annual Battle of the Books on March 5 for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students! In preparation for the event, Dilworth will be holding monthly Book Club meetings. Our first lunch Book Club will be Wednesday, October 3, in the Library at 11:50 a.m. Students are expected to read the book Word of Mouse written by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein before the October 3 date. Books can be found at the public library, purchased from a local bookstore, or a book may be purchased for $10 from Mrs. Lewis, the Library Technology Teacher. Orders must be given to Mrs. Lewis by Wednesday, September 12, and please have the money (cash preferred) when the book is ordered.

FYI: Battle of the Books is "a voluntary reading incentive program for students grades 4-6. The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books as a community." A "Battle" is like a College Bowl or Geography Bee and is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5 at Wasatch Elementary after school hours; the exact time is still to be determined. Teams of four students (and one alternative) will answer questions based on the school year's books. The school team with the most correct answers wins the Battle for the school year. 2018-19 Battle of the Books list was provided to students before the end of last school year. The Salt Lake City Public Library has multiple copies of the books and the book list can be found on the school website on the Library page.

Battle of the Books 2018-2019

Students in grades 4-6 are invited to participate in the 2018-2019 Battle of the Books. Below is a list of books that will be included in this year’s Battle of the Books competition. You do not need to participate in the battle to read the books. They are great recommendations for reading. If you want to participate in the competition, you will want to get a head start on reading the books.  More details to come at the beginning of 2018-19 School Year!  HAPPY READING!
