Name that Book!
The Name That Book contest is coordinated by the HISD Department of Library Services, serves to acquaint HISD students with classic literature as well as contemporary award-winning books, representing a variety of genres.
GVE's Name That Book is sponsored by our Library Clerk, Ms. Jennifer Elias. Our school competes at the 3rd – 5th grade level.
HISD puts out a list of 30-35 books (these lists include the 2 by 2 books for the lower grades and the Bluebonnet Books for the 3-5 students). Six students work as a team answering questions where the answer is the name of the book. The K-2 students have a flip chart where they pick the cover. The 3-5 team has a dry erase board where they have to write the title. The teams compete against other HISD schools, to find out more about Name That Book, please visit the HISD webpage.
