Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books (BOB)

Battle of the Books participants read 15 books and then compete against the other elementary schools in Asheboro City Schools.  We practice weekly and spend a lot of time reading on our own.  Battle of the Books is very challenging and takes a lot of hard work, but is fun, too!  At practice we discuss the different books and conduct mock competitions.  

Here's what some members of the BOB team for McCrary have had to say about the club:

"Battle of the Books encourages kids to read!  It's a great outlet to plug your mind into!" - Jacque

"Battle of the Books was an awesome experience!" - Joshua

"Battle of the Books was fun and challenging for me!" - Lilly
