Battle of the Books led by Mrs. Amanda Autry & Thomas LeaheyNC Battle of Books logo
Elementary Battle of the Books is a club for 3rd – 5th graders who love to read.  Up to 12 students (4th and 5th grade)from the club will be selected to represent our school at the county-wide competition.  This competition consists of reading selected books.  Each child on the team will read for comprehension in order to be able to answer questions about the books.  This competition resembles a spelling bee in that the student is asked a question and then responds.  Students must fill out an application and take a title/author quiz to be accepted into the club.  The current Battle of the Books list can be found here.
