*Battle of the Books - aka- BOB!
Orchard Lane's Battle of the Books program is designed to promote a love of reading among our students. It is for students in 5th and 6th grade. It encourages students to read a variety of books and remember information about the plots, characters, and settings of the books. Every question asked in a battle is answered by the title and author of the book and takes the form of : Name of book in which a horse and a boy are stranded on an island. It is a fun, academic-based, competition designed to encourage students to read good books and have fun competing with peers.
Students in 5th and 6th grade are all invited to participate. Students form teams of three and receive a list of 15 book titles. Battles will begin the week of Nov. 14, and held during the lunch hour. The first round is a practice round and all teams will advance to the next level. The battles continue into December. Please look for more information to come in the next couple weeks!
