What is The Battle of the Books?

It is a competition between Olde Creek 4th and 5th grade classes involving 8 books. Each class will have 3 participating representatives and one alternate representative. During the battle, questions about the selected books will be asked. The team that answers the most questions correctly wins the battle for their class and will keep the trophy in their classroom until the next battle!


How can I represent my class?

Read as many of the selected books as you can and take the Battle of the Books quiz. The 3 students scoring the highest on the quiz will represent their class.


How can I participate if I am not my class rep?

If you are not selected to represent your class, your knowledge of the selected books may help your class. Students from each class may be called upon by their class representatives as a “phone-a-friend.” Each class will also create a class name, themed costume, and a class chant. The chants will be presented by the whole class during the battle.


Where can I get the books?

Look for the special collection of Battle of the Books titles in the Olde Creek Library. Check one out today! The OC Library will be open on Wednesday nights from 5:00pm – 7:00pm this summer on the following dates: July 5, 12, 19 and August 2, 9, & 16.
