The students in 6th grade have been experiencing a different kind of March Madness this month. They started with a bracket of 64 books, and they've been voting on which are the best reads. The tournament is currently on the third round, the Sweet Sixteen.
So far, number one seeds Harry Potter, The Lightning Thief, and Wonder have been dominating their regions. In an upset, The Lost Hero was beaten by Hatchet in the final region. "I've been surprised and pleased that the classics have been holding their own against some newer, shinier stories," said Humanities teacher Tony Tovar.
You can check out the bracket in the first floor hallway by the 6th grade classrooms. How is your child's favorite book doing in the tournament?
