Battle of the Books

Ethan recently participated in the "Battle of the Books" at school. The kids are supposed to read the books on a list and then are put in teams to answer questions about the books. They even buzz in like they do on "Jeopardy"
It takes a lot of concentration :D
It was actually kindof exciting. When the buzzer went off the teams were tied and they had to have a tie breaker. He did a good job and it was a lot of fun to watch. :D

Sounds really cool. Great way to encourage the kids to really understand what they read

That looks like fun! I would have loved to do something like that. I was in a math buzz-in challenge in 5th grade.

Wish I could have been there. I can imagine the excitement. Love the look of concentration on Ethan's face. In this picture I can see a cross section of his parents.
