Battle of the Books
Wilburn Elementary will be participating in Battle of the Books sponsored by the North Carolina School Library Media Association (NSCSLMA). The goal is for the participating students to read all 18 books and adhere to the Philosophy of the EBoB which is:
"The purpose of the Elementary Battle of the Books program is to encourage reading by all students at the elementary school level. Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors in the area of young adult literature. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base. Even during the height of the competition, students and coaches should remember that the goal is to READ, not necessarily to win!"
