Elementary Battle of the Books
Fourth and fifth grade students at Pinebrook Elementary School are invited to participate in the Elementary Battle of the Books (EBOB). EBOB is designed to encourage reading by all students regardless of ability. EBOB exposes students to quality literature. Students’ participation is voluntary; but to qualify for the EBOB team, students must read 7 of the 10 EBOB titles and get 70% on each quiz for each book that they read by the end of February 2021. The students interested in participating will attend meetings during their lunch period where quizzes will be taken, books checked out, progress monitored, and books discussed. These meetings will occur twice a month beginning third quarter. In February we will start meeting once per week. The county wide competition will take place in April (date TBD).
The EBOB titles selected for 2020-2021 are listed below. Some of these titles may be read with their classroom teacher. These books are available for check out in our school library. Students interested in participating will receive a bookmark of the titles and an EBOB informational flyer. Please contact Sara Rhyne (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
