What is BOB?

The Battle of the Books promotes, encourages, and fosters young readers’ minds and engages them in friendly competition. It is a program that runs with ongoing effort on your student’s part, to read a minimum required books at their grade level.

 

3rd Grade  

-  must read at least 8 out of 15 books on the list to qualify for the battle in Spring

 

4th/5th Grade 

- must read at least 12 out of  36 books on the list to qualify for the battle in Spring

 

Through the school year, there will be support of this program provided by our teachers and volunteer chairpersons.  There will be lunch time discussion sessions, fun games, and other opportunities to explore the books being read.  At the conclusion, there is an after-school competition where groups of students compete against each other in 3 types of rounds. 

 

If you aren’t sure about participating, but would like to be included in our communications, please register online anyway so you have the latest information regarding the program.  You can cancel out of the program at any time before teams are created in March.
