     Master List Resources


    Welcome to the  Texas 2 by 2  Award Master List Resources Page! We hope you will find the resources on this page useful as you are planning your Texas 2 by 2 Program for this year.

    Each year, the TBA selection committee chooses 20 books as the “Texas 2 by 2 Award Master List”.  The author of the book receiving the most votes statewide is declared the winner of the Texas 2 by 2  Award.

     Students from kinder , 1st and 2nd grade can participate. We will make teams and Battle at Jordan. The winners then will go to Battle at District Level. This will be a team of 2 kinder , 2 first grade and 2 second grade students.
