Battle of the Books at Pattengill & Rogers

Battle of the Books at Pattengill & Rogers

Battle of the Books is a reading challenge for 4th and 5th grade students in which participants are placed on a team, read from a selected list of books and then compete against other teams by answering questions about those books. The goal of Battle of the Books is to encourage students to read various genres of books and to enhance their reading comprehension. Adult family members serve as coaches for each team as well. Both Rogers and Pattengill held their competition on Wednesday, March 20.


Students at Pattengill and Rogers read the same six books for their competitions:

Booked by Kwame Alexander

Giant Squid by Mary Cerullo with Clyde Roper

High Score by Destiny Howell

How to Heal a Gryphon by Meg Cannistra

Iceberg by Jennifer Nielsen

Woke: a Young Poet's Call to Justice by Mahogany Browne with Elizabeth Acevedo and Olivia Gatwood
