Grades 4 and 5 students have the option to participate in Battle of the Books. During Media Class, students were given information about the program and they were introduced to the 6 books they are required to read. Students are enthusiastically checking out books, journaling, and forming teams in preparation for the battles which will begin Tuesday, November 28, 2017.
Grade 3 students will all participate in a modified Battle of the Books competition. All 3rd grade students will participate. During Media Class, Mrs. Stem has started reading the Georgia Book Award nominated books which will be used for the competition. Students create a study guide in class which they can use to prepare for the battles. Battles for grade 3 will begin after we return from Winter Break.
We have more teams than ever this year participating. 17 teams in grade 5 and 27 teams in grade 4. There will be 83 battles. We will begin Nov. 27 at 7:50 am and battle each day through Dec. 14. Students may access the Google Classroom of Battle of the Books: vha014. Vocabulary Lists and Schedules for B.O.B will be available in Google Classroom.
