More Battle of the Books to Read

Help me give my students the Louisiana Choice award books to read to join the battle of the books competition in our parish. We are trying to get multiple copies of these books for students to read.

My Students

This year our school has decided to join the Battle of the Books contest by reading the Louisiana Choice award book list of 2019-2020. We have about 20 students participating this year. I hope to expand and have more students participate for the 2020-2021 school year.

The students that are participating this year are excited to come check out the 12 book titles that are on this year's Choice Award List.

They have formed their teams and are excited about the competition. This motivates the students to come to the library and check out more books. Students need motivation to read more so that their reading level improves. I hope the competition will help motivate more students to join the competition next year and instill a love of reading and talking about books.

My Project

A little competition will help motivate our students to read. The Battle of the Books competition just started in our parish about 2 years ago. We hope that the competition will promote reading. 2019-2020 school year is the first year that my school participated and the students are excited about the competition. More books would provide more circulation of the books between students. We want our students to get excited about reading.

Middle school students like to compete so the Battle of the Books will motivate reading in our school.

Your help will allow us to encourage the love of reading.
