Calling all 3rd and 4th Graders:

3rd & 4th graders:
This club is limited 3rd and 4th graders only. This program is designed to encourage students to read a variety of authors and genres. Students will have an opportunity to participate in contests based on the books listed below.
Students will make teams of 5-6 during our first meeting.
Each member will need to read as many books on the list as possible & take notes.
Teams will answer questions about the books on the list and play in elimination rounds until we are down to 2 teams.
The winning team from LES will go on to compete at our District competition!

We will only have a few meeting dates (maybe one a month). The competition will be held at the end of the school year.

Meeting time: 8:00-8:30
First Meeting: Monday, November 13th (informational)
All other meetings will be announced throughout the year.
