What is Elementary Battle of the Books?

The purpose of this program is to encourage reading by all students. Students are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, expand their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base.  Even during the height of the competition, students and coaches should remember that the goal is to READ, not necessarily to win!

This is a select group of 4th and 5th graders who will compete against other elementary school teams in the Haywood County Elementary Battle of the Books (EBOB) competition in March 2015.  We meet on Wednesdays from 11:30-12:30. These meetings are mandatory and attendance is very important!

What do I have to do?

To get started…

  • You have to be a 4th or 5th grader.
