Elementary students participate in 13th annual Battle of the Books

Schuylerville Elementary School students in grades 3-6 participated in the 13th annual Battle of the Books! Students read ten fiction and non-fiction books between October and March to prepare for the event under the guidance of School Library Media Specialist Maria Weeks (grades 3-5) and Schuylerville Middle School teacher Amy Steele-Whitney (grade 6). The titles span a variety of genres, with the intent of exposing students to several types of literature. Teams work together to share thoughts and reflections about the books in preparation for the competition’s questions.

Schuylerville students were among the 546 students from 21 school districts who participated in this year’s competition. The event is organized by the Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton-Essex BOCES School Library System. On the battle day, the teams are tested wide-ranging details of the books. Teams have 45 seconds to a minute to answer a question by selecting the correct title. Thank you to Schuylerville’s chaperones, David Bassani, Mary Gell, and Krista Senatore.
