What is EBOB?
Elementary Battle of the Books, that's what!!!
Are you a book lover and an avid reader in 4th or 5th grade? Are you the type of student that can't put down books during your 'free time?' You may want to consider participating in EBOB!! Battle of the Books (BOB) is a book competition initiated by the North Carolina School Library Association. Traditionally, BOB is a middle school competition, but a few years back, elementary schools wanting 'in' on the action, birthed EBOB or Elementary
Battle of the Books. EBOB is not as scheduled or rigorous as it is at the middle school level. The book list, above, is put together by the state committee. The books are selected on curriculum criteria, varied reading level, and dual similarity. Students decide if they're interested and commit to reading 5 of the books on the list, becoming 'experts' in their selections. Students practice during and after school leading up to a school-wide competion, then a district competition!! Please visit the North Carolina School Library Media Association for more information and this year's booklist: http://www.ncslma.org/book-competitions.html
