New Salem's BOB Team Wins First Place
New Salem Elementary's Battle of the Books team recently placed first in the Union County Elementary B.O.B. Competition. Dr. Beverly Little and Mrs. Carolyn Sherman coached the school's AIG Reading classes in the reading of 18 quality children's literature books. To prepare for the meet, students completed a variety of literature units. Units included creating video book promotions, bookmarks, book covers, scrapbooks, Timeliner projects, Powerpoint presentations, Webquests, Wordles, a Quiz Bowl using Google Docs, and more. Through the fun and excitement of a game format, students improved reading skills, matured in their choices of reading materials, and acquired a broader knowledge base. Others schools participating in the Elementary Battle of the Books included Antioch, East, Marvin, Prospect, Rea View, and Walter Bickett. New Salem Elementary's BOB Team included Caitlin Austin, Cayden Bell, Connor Baucom, Patrick Burke, Kaitlyn Cumber, Adam Helms, Madison Holt, Dylan Little, Whitley Long, Sallie Parker, Chloe Trull, and Sydney Wingo.
Battle of the Books is sponsored by NC School Library Media Association.
