Battle of the Books
Medlock Bridge Elementary School is excited to announce Battle of the Books!
Battle of the Books is a fun, friendly reading competition open to all 5th grade students. Students will form teams of 10 students per team.
Each student is required to read 6 of the 8 Battle of the Books Titles:
By the Great Horn Spoon by Sid Fleischman
Wonder by R. J. Palacio
Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke
The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements
The Watsons go to Birmingham by Christopher Paul Curtis
Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm

The Battle of the Books will be in a game show format and the MBES round will take place in the early spring. The winning team at MBES will compete in a Northeast Learning Community round, battling against other Elementary School teams in our area. This round will take place in late spring.
Competition dates will be announced in January.
All titles are available for a two week loan period from the Media Center and may be renewed one time. Students may check out one Battle of the Books title at a time.
