Battle of the Bluestem Books Winner!

Reported by on 3/8/18

Every year, our students read book nominees for The Bluestem Award: Illinois’ Grades 3-5 Reader’s Choice Award, under the Illinois School Library Media Association (ISLMA). As a culminating activity, teams of four work together to read all the books to compete in a trivia competition. Teams at Kendall Elementary compete by grade level first, then, the winning team from each grade level competes against one another. The final winning team goes to a district battle at Graham Elementary school, where they will compete against students from several schools in the district. This year’s grade-level team winners were the Pink Fluffy Unicorns (3rd grade), the Crazy Chickens (4th grade), and the Volcanic Readers (5th grade). For the 2nd year in a row, the winning team from Kendall is the Volcanic Readers – Jillian, Rhianna, Colin, Riana, and Ben!
