Battle of the Books is a team reading comprehension program. The goals of BOB are to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, broaden reading interest, increase reading comprehension, and promote academic excellence.
Each year, eight books are chosen for Poudre School District elementary students in each grade level 3-5. Parent-led teams consisting of 4 - 5 students within each of these grades, read each of the books, discuss them, quiz each other on the contents, and then compete with other Traut teams in the Battle of the Books tournament in the spring. The winning team from each grade level will compete against other participating elementary schools in the district!
