Tournament of Books

Third grade students in Miss Quist and Mrs. Rubio's classes at Tecumseh Elementary were immersed in their own March Madness - of books! The teachers selected 16 "sweet" books and then the students voted for their favorite titles.

Students in Mrs. Rubio's class made a slide show sharing their reasoning behind each of their votes. Then the classes went head to head in a basketball game. After announcing the winner of the book brackets, some cheered, and some felt robbed, much like the real-life March Madness basketball games!

The winning book was "Found" by Jeff Newman and Larry Day. Mrs. Rubio reports the students had a great time learning about each book and the connections they made between the books and the characters were phenomenal. 

Their book tournament bracket included the following books, with links to the books on Scholastic or Amazon:
