"Battle of the Books" is
a reading program in which 4th and 5th students read books from a predetermined
list of 10 books selected from the
2012-2013 South Carolina
Children's Book Award Nominee List. Students
in the 4th and 5th grade classes
form teams of students who compete to be the grade level champion by
answering questions about the books. The 4th and 5th grade champions then compete against each other to determine which team will become our school
champion who represent our school in the district Battle of the Books
Championship which will be held in April 2013.
The questions in the BOB competition begin with the word "In which book" and the
correct answer is the title and author of the book. Both the list of books
and questions about the books are determined by the media specialist of
participating schools in our district Battle of the Books.
to our 2011-2012 Battle of the Books team who tied for third place at the District Battle of
