Bird Rock students do battle over books
Children answer a question as another group waits for its turn.
America’s Battle of the Books (www.battleofthebooks.org) is a national reading incentive program in which third- to 12th-grade students read a series of books and then come together in a lively academic competition testing their knowledge of the books.
Sponsored by Bird Rock’s PTA, this program improves reading comprehension, builds vocabulary and teaches teamwork and good sportsmanship.
The “Team Battle Champions” for each grade level are:
• Third grade: Kate Gun-Wilkinson, Emily Johnson, Alex Mesri, Johnny Meyerott, Neah Moradi, Maya Ordonezlandberg and Matt Stone.
• Fourth grade: Johan Agardh, Nick Costanza, Kenan Dogan, Natasha Goldberger, Morgan Hansen, Kendall Lincoln, Sammy Smigliani and Grant Wagner.
• Fifth grade: Tommy Barton, Maggie Garvey, Connor Harrison, Fate Jacobson, Nicole Mossmer, Oliver Ryan, Julie Shriver, Lucas Smith, Sage Tellew, Katie Wilkinson and Hannah Zou.
