Battle of the Books Club

A book with pages fluttering in the breeze.Coached by: Mrs. Wirley and Mrs. Bigler

Elementary Battle of the Books is a club for 4th and 5th graders who love to read.  Up to 12 students from the club will be selected to represent our school at the county-wide competition.  This competition consists of reading selected books.  Each child on the team will read for comprehension in order to be able to answer questions about the books.  This competition resembles a spelling bee in that the student is asked a question and then responds.  Students must fill out an application and take a title/author quiz to be accepted into the club.  Once in the club, students must read and complete assignments by due dates in order to remain in the club.  In January, the final team for competition is selected.  We usually compete in March.  The 2020-21 EBOB list is:
