On Thursday, September 15, 2022, students interested in trying out for the 2022-23 General Greene EBOB Team, should join us in the media center from 2:45 – 3:45 pm! During this meeting students will learn about EBOB and the expectations for being a part of the team! Students must have parental permission and reliable transportation for pick up at 3:45 pm. There will be no bus service available for students participating in this after school activity.
Fifteen books are on the EBOB Reading List and students must read and be very detailed oriented to be considered for the team. Weekly meetings (Thursday:2:45- 3:45 pm) begin as a book club type atmosphere but on November 3rd, students will try out for the team – based on their knowledge of the books and rules of the competition. Up to 12 students will be selected to compete with our team.
If you are interested, please return this permission slip by Tuesday, September 13th. Students will not be allowed to stay without permission. Parents must also communicate with the student’s teacher that they are staying for this event.

Students interested in joining General Greene's Elementary Battle of the Books Team 2022-23
Students entering 4th and 5th grade next year have the opportunity to try-out for this 12-person team.
I am excited to begin my 9th year as General Greene's Media Specialist! I enjoy teaching students 21st century skills, preparing them to be future-ready! Students in media classes learn about digital citizenship and how to explore the library collection--discovering printed and digital reading material for information and enjoyment!
Before I became a media specialist, I was a technology assistant for Guilford County Schools. I earned my undergraduate and Master of Library and Information Studies Degree from UNCG.
Students interested in trying out for General Greene's Elementary 2022-23 Battle of the Books Team may join this Nearpod for book trailers for the 15 books on the EBOB Reading List! Students who are seriously interested in trying out for the team should attempt to read 5 of the books on the list this summer. 🙂To join the Nearpod, students go to : join.nearpod.com and enter the code: GYTNWIf you are interested in checking out these books, go to the public library or check out NC Kids Digital Library, or you may purchase some of the books at Barnes and Noble. We will have copies of these books to share at General Greene in the fall. Meeting dates are to be announced.EBOB is a reading competition among elementary schools in Guilford County. Students are quizzed on details from the stories. The tricky part is that there are books that are very similar to one another so students have to be VERY detailed oriented. Here is an example of an EBOB question from the book, "Fish In a Tree" by Lynda Mullaly Hunt.In which book does a character wear the same dark t-shirt every day?So, you see knowing the plot of the story is important but very tiny details are quizzed at the EBOB competition. If you like detective work, you will LOVE EBOB! Are you up for the challenge?!!!If you think you are interested, send an email to Mrs. Collins: email@example.comHave a great summer!~Mrs. Collins
