Two women named Heather and I ran this room for the district-wide Oregon Battle of the Books tournament on Thursday at Ninety One School. Three 5th grade teams from Lee, Carus, and Eccles battled it out in a round robin, quiz bowl like fashion in our room with the hosting 5th grade Ninety One classroom looking on. There were 29 teams from the 3-5 grade division nestled in various locations around the school, plus 13 teams from the 6-8 grade division. It is astounding the level of detail that the kids can recall from the 16 books they read! Hear hear for literacy in Canby!
