Elementary Battle of the Books is a program sponsored by the North Carolina School Library Media Association to promote reading and to expose students to quality literature.
A team, of fourth and fifth grade students, is selected to compete in a county wide competition. The team is usually six to eight people, but can be up to twelve.
Student's are selected on a try-out basis. They are given a novel to read in a two week time period. Then, on a designated day, they take a quiz related to that book.
Please understand this is a commitment on your child’s part. There are 15 books on the novel list next year. There will be meetings at least once a week until 3:00 pm on Tuesdays.
Elementary Battle of the Books is in addition to what students will be doing in class but it will offer them an opportunity to stretch themselves and to explore a variety of wonderful literature.
