Home / School News / CMS Battle of the Books Wins County Level

 

 

Battle of the Books team at Canton Middle School competed in their first competition Feb.17th and won first place for the county. Now they are gearing up for the regional competition to be held in Sylva on March 14th.  These students have been reading books, 27 in all, since the beginning of school.  The list of books includes biographies and other non-fiction as well as fiction, all recognized as high quality literature. It takes a lot of dedication to perform well as a team.  Although students practice some at school, most of the work is done on their own time.  Books must be read thoroughly so that details are retained.   The reward is more than the competition; students improve in their reading skills and at the same time learn about types of books and authors whom they really enjoy and will read more from in the future.
