The Battle of the Books has returned to PS 87! This year our 5th graders are participating in a  competition to test their reading and comprehension skills. The students formed teams and have begun reading the 30 required books. Over the 6 months, they will work together with their teams to discuss the books they have read and memorize the authors. The date of the battle will be announced. Good Luck to all of the teams!!!! Here are some of the titles the students will be reading:

NYC Reads 365 is a new multi-year citywide literacy effort to promote a City that reads every day, in and out of school.  All pre-K through grade 12 schools will receive ongoing resources to promote daily reading – new and age-appropriate reading lists, engaging posters and bookmarks, and support and trainings for school staff and parents geared towards strengthening students’ reading skills and encouraging a love for reading. Students and families can also easily access updated reading lists and extensive reading resources at a new NYC Reads 365 website

Our school will be receiving copies of some of these books and the Public Libraries will also be stocking up on them as well. Look for more information as it becomes available.
