What is Oregon Battle of the Books?: Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries. 16 books are chosen by committee. Students are assigned to teams of 4-5 students from their class, they read 4-16 of the books, meet with their parent coach 1x per week, and participate in game show style competitions January – February.
Who is eligible to participate?: Any 3rd-5th grade student.
How does my child participate?: Permission slips will be sent home by Monday, October 7th and are DUE Thursday, October 10th. (Didn’t see that permission slip? No problem! Ask your teacher or contact Molly Porter.)
Who assigns teams?: Teachers.
How do I sign up to coach?: Fill out and return the bottom of the sign up sheet that was sent home with your student. Attend the informational meeting Wednesday, October 9th, 2:30 – 3:15 PM, in the Chapman school library. (Can’t attend. No problem!
