In the spirit of the NCAA college basketball brackets, I’m doing a book bracket (a BOOKet?) in my class. (SEE BRACKET BELOW)
On Monday I had each student write down his or her two favorite books from this year. I tallied them up and fortunately came up with a clear 16 favorite books.
This is the Sweet 16.
The four highest vote-getters were The Hunger Games series, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, the Percy Jackson series, and the Amulet books. These are my #1 seeds.
The #2 seeds are Origami Yoda, Ultraviolet, Dork Diaries series, and A Monster Calls.
The rest of the books were randomly assigned to teams.
The rules are simple: When a team wins, the book wins.
The NCAA BOOK champ will be crowned on April 2.
May the best book win. (Or, May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor…)
I will update the bracket when games finish up this weekend.
