Battle of the Books

We’re getting ready for the 2013 of Battle of the Books.  At Kitchener this will involve Divs 1-4: Mrs. Ewald, Mr. Singh, Mrs. Brendzy, and Mr. Rich’s classes.  We are in the process of choosing the books, and will begin reading right after Christmas.  At Lyndhurst it will run from March to May and will involve Ms. Smith and Ms. Deol’s classes.

The books we have chosen are: Wonder by R.J. Palacio, Whispers from the Ghetto by Kathy Kacer,Handful of Time by Kit Pearson, Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes, Eight Keys, Wildlife, Endangered, Inside Out and Back Again, and the tenth book will be either Mathilda by Roald Dahl or Dogs don’t Tell Jokes by Louis Sacher. We’re voting on that one today, so stay posted….
