Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books (BOB) is a reading program designed to encourage students to read quality literature and have fun competing with their peers The program is offered to 5th and 6th grade students. Teams are formed consisting of 2-3 students. Students read from a pre-selected list of 12 books, 4 for each battle. Students are asked to read all 12 of the books. Reading levels range from 3.9-5.7 (AR colors are white, orange, light blue and light green). At the end of each quarter, the teams will “battle” by answering questions about the books they have read. In a battle each student team is asked questions about the books and they earn points based on their answers. The top team at the end of the three battles will go on to the district battle in April.
