Get Ready to YETI in 2021!  Remotely on Wednesdays at 9:00 on Yeti Zoom

The YETI Book Competition is an optional activity available to 4th and 5th graders across the school district. This year we will meet on Zoom (You will be sent a link on January 6, the date of our first weekly meeting). We will meet for no more than 30 minutes. Playing games and solving puzzles based on our books makes the time fly! Watch the Slideshow now!

Each summer, the Bellingham School District Librarians carefully select a range of content appropriate novels from the Sasquatch and Young Readers Choice lists. We make sure to include various genres with diverse characters and a broad reading level range, making it possible for 4th and 5th graders to read from the same list of books. Place the titles on hold at our school library, the public library, on Libby and in Epic. Some titles are available in Learning Ally too. Village Books has the Yeti list if you want to buy the titles and support local business at gift giving times. Watch the slide show below to see which books you’d like to read first, and next!

At Wade King, the emphasis is on fun, cooperative game playing using knowledge of the nominated books. The competition aspect is important for some students, but not the focus at Wade King. Participating in the culminating competitions is absolutely optional. However, once committed to a team, students are expected to follow through.

The School Competitions are scheduled for March 31.

The District Competitions are scheduled for April 14.

Practice Quizzes are here!
