Battle of the Books

Image of books playing tug of war as in battle for battle of the booksThe 2016-2017 Battle of the Books list is out, and YOU are eligible to join!!

Battle of the Books (BOB) is open only to next year’s 4th and 5th graders, and requires that students read select books for comprehension in order to answer questions about those books. Each student participating in Battle of the Books will read from the official list of titles and become very familiar with the characters and stories. The list of books is available  in the media center. Students who are interested in joining BOB next year can begin reading now. This makes a great summer reading list!

Students will be asked to memorize titles and authors, write BOB formatted questions covering the books they read, and be able to discuss the books they have read with others in the club. From the students initially involved in Battle of the Books, a team of 6-12 students will be chosen for competition. These students will become “experts” on select BOB titles. The Battle of the Books team members will receive BOB team shirts, participation medals, certificates, and other incentives. 

The competition will be held in February and resembles a spelling bee type format with students being asked a question about a book with the correct response always being the title and author of the book. Students do, however, get to confer with their teammates before answering each question.  Everyone who makes the final team will participate on competition day.

Our team has been chosen and are working diligently to have an awesome year.
