"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 2013-2014 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 2014. 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.
