Lido Teams Tie for Second Place in Battle of the Books

On Friday, May 20, Lido Elementary School third- and fourth-grade classes took on a friendly reading challenge against students from a neighboring community during the first South Shore Battle of the Books competition. This reading incentive program involves elementary, middle and high schools across the country.
A total of 32 Lido students responded to questions that asked them to identify the titles and authors of various books that were described. The students participated in an after-school club for ten weeks prior to the contest, where they read 14 book of various genres.
In teams, the students had opportunities to discuss and share events from each story. In preparation for the Battle, students were asked a variety of questions and had to quickly decide which book and author was the correct answer. The two Lido teams tied for second–place in the semifinals competing against three other teams.
