In the last month ....
Battle of the Books.
Each year middle school students form teams, read a selection of books (this year they chose the books), write questions and then meet in the library for a classroom "battle". This experience takes over 3 months or more to complete as the students are working on reading 3-4 books each for their teams and crafting questions that will be used in the final battles. The best part is seeing the teams work together - and the team names they pick!
This year's classroom winners were:
6th - The Book Burners
7th - The Awk-word .....
8th - Goats International
The Grand BoB Winner was 7th Grade!
