Spring means junior high Reading Bowl. Seventh grade competition started this week, and I sat in on a round with two teams from Jennifer & Tony's class and one from Bonnie & Uri's class. Each Bowl consists of several rounds, and the six top scoring teams from the preliminaries go onto the final round, which will be next week.

Based on the TV game show Jeopardy, reading bowl actually started with a working Jeopardy game set programmed with answers and questions, bouncing daily doubles and the classic Jeopardy beep sounds, but these days it's gone low tech (and it works just as well).
|Hmm, what was that dog's name?|
The complete Reading Bowl lists for both grades are posted in the Reading Lists section of the library catalog. Many are available as audiobooks and ebooks as well as in print, making them accessible to a larger number of students.
Oh, and what was that poodle's name? Why, Llama, of course!
