A resource for teachers of grades K-5 to fostering a love of reading in their students Oct 12, 2005
Collectively and collaboratively compiled by educators Sybilla Cook, Frances Corcoran, Beverley Fonnesbeck, and Roz Goodman, Elementary Battle Of The Books is a resource for teachers of grades K-5 to fostering a love of reading in their students by organizing "book contests". Providing a list of over 300 popular titles and classics, Elementary Battle Of The Books offers five sample questions and web sites pertaining to each book, as well as guidelines for setting up a team-based game in which students test their knowledge of the books in a fun and fast-paced competition. A sample book entry for "Owl Moon" includes the author, illustrator, publisher, and ISBN information for the book, sample URLs related to the book, a list of awards the book has received, and suggested questions such as "In which book do trains and dogs sing at night?" and "In which book is a big flashlight used to see a bird sitting on a branch?" An excellent resource for promoting the joy of reading in young people.
