2018 Battle of the Books (BOBs)

Battle of the Books

New in 2018...You be the Judge!

We have select 16 picture books to be contenders in the upcoming Battle of the Books. All 16 books are on display, in the library.  Students in grades 3-8 may come into the library during class visits, recess, and lunch to read and evaluate the contenders.  After reading a book, simply fill out a Judges Worksheet and place it on the Librarian's Desk.  All worksheets will be tallied to create a score for each book.

In early March, upper elementary and jr. high students will fill out brackets with their best "guess" as to the books that will win each battle.  Each day, a winner will be posted on the library bulletin board.  At the end, students with the most correct guesses will win a fabulous prize.  Good luck Panthers!
