EBOB Competition

Fairview's Elementary Battle of the Books (EBOB) Team has been working hard for the county competition that took place on Monday, April 18th.  Students were responsible for reading as many of the 15 books on the NC EBOB book list and memorizing facts such as characters, plot, and theme.  Students began meeting after school on Tuesday's in November to work as a team to learn book titles, author names, and plots.  The media center was also availble on Wednesday mornings from 7:10 - 7:30am for team members to come and quiz themselves using an online program www.mybobteam.com that is purchased specifcally for preparing for the EBOB competition. EBOB is only open to fourth and fifth graders and the team cannot consist of more than 12 members.  Mrs. Shulman has headed up the team for the past 3 years and is impressed with the growth of the team.  The new book list is now availble for the 2019-2020 school year and Mrs. Shulman will be sharing it with the students soon to get them excited for next years competition.
