Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books (BOB) is a program for students who love to read and remember what they read. The program is for fourth and fifth graders. The books are fiction and cover many genres (adventure, historical, mystery, science fiction, realistic and author study). The team members are encouraged to read as many of the books as they can. There are 20 books on the list. There will be a competition in which all elementary schools in Fauquier County-including private schools-get together to see which school has the best readers. It is fun, exciting and challenging. BOB is a way of testing your knowledge of the books by identifying titles from questions based upon plot, setting, and characters. The BOB team meets weekly to discuss the books they have read and review questions about the books.
