Prepare for the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl 2019
The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl team at Sequoyah Middle School is an academic club for 5-10 students. The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is a statewide competition in which teams of students compete in a “quiz bowl”- type contest to correctly answer trivia questions about books nominated for the annual Georgia Children’s Book Award. This dedicated team will have a great time at our 2019 competition at Arabia Mountain High School in January. We will persevere and answer lots of questions.  Every team member will carry his/her own weight and read lots of books. 

Click here to get the complete NEW 2018-19 middle school book list. All of the books are in our school library. Books are available for all students to read now!

Use Quizlet at home and school (you don't have to log in) and practice answering questions - there are flashcards and a matching game students can play for speed practice. If you have a log in, you can create your own study questions - which is a really good idea! I will show you how to set up an account to practice at home on your own or at school with team members.  Remember to stick to the format, "In the book, __, " and include the page number where you find the answer (also check your spelling, punctuation, and capitalization since others will use your questions). There are questions posted for each book.
 
We competed in the HRRB last Saturday, January 27, 2018 and made a lot of progress.  Thanks to Mr. Anthony and our team for coming out to the competition!  Thank you Addis, Azucena, Jaquelyn, Michele and Sara for competing at a high level this competition season.  We look forward to your continued participation and leadership as we prepare for the 2018-2019 HRRB. As soon as we receive the new list of books we will post them here for your use.  Until then keep reading! 

If you need more information or have any questions about the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl please contact Ms. Spence 678-676-7933 or by e-mail allison_spence@dekalbschoolsga.org.
