McCornack OBOB:  Looking for readers!

booksDoes your 3rd, 4th or 5th grader love to read? If so, McCornack is once again participating in the Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) competition. OBOB is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries in conjunction with a Library Services and Technology Act grant.

Students in 3rd-12th grade, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints. The mission is to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, to broaden reading interests, to increase reading comprehension, promote academic excellence, and to promote cooperative learning and teamwork among students.

Join a team!

Team-building1.jpgStudents join a team of 4 or 5 students, read the 16 OBOB books and then prepare themselves to answer questions from the books. Competition begins in February so students have plenty of time to read and study. Student registration forms will be sent home at the end of September. If you are interested in becoming an OBOB coach, please email Regina Ligon: ligon_r@4j.lane.edu.
