Linton Library Announces Battle of the Books!
Battle of the Books is a motivational reading program sponsored by the Alaska Association of School Libraries (AKASL). The goals of the program are to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, to broaden reading interests, to improve reading comprehension, and to promote academic excellence.
Lists of book are chosen for grades 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Students form teams of three, four, or five read the books, discuss them, and quiz each other on the contents. Each team needs to have an adult coach/sponsor who helps keep the team organized and motivated along the way. Practice questions are available for teams to use in preparation for the actual battle. A quiz show format is then used with all the teams to see which team answers the most questions correctly.
Sign up for BOB begins NOW! Materials can be picked up in the Media Center or printed below.
Deadline to sign up is October 18th.
