Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books (BOB) is a district wide program for 5th and 6th grades. The program runs all 4 quarters of the school year. Students are in groups of three students that meet once a week with a teacher leader to prepare for quarterly battles against all other Jacobson student teams. To prepare for the battles, all students read 4 books a quarter (12 books altogether) and do activities that will prepare them for a successful book battle! The battles take place the week after each quarterly school break (fall break, winter break, and spring break). 4th quarter battle are only for the top scoring team from Jacobson.
