Elementary Battle of the Books

Fourth and fifth grade students at Mocksville 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 in December.  In February we will start meeting once per week.  We will meet every day two weeks before the competition to practice.  The county wide competition will take place in April (date TBD).  After the competition we will schedule a celebratory lunch.

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.
