"OBOB's 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."
The teams consist of four students with one alternate. Each team must read the 16 books and will be quizzed over content as well as "In Which Book..." questions.
At MRA, we currently have two 6th-8th grade teams who are in a reading frenzy to complete their books before their first school battle. At the 3rd-5th grade level we have five teams who are discovering what a battle looks like and working hard to memorize all the titles and authors.
We would like to invite you to our battles. The following bracket is for the 3rd-5th grade teams.
The first battles for the 3rd-5th teams begin on Monday, January 23rd at 11:30.
The first battle for the 6th-8th grade teams will be on Tuesday, January 24th at 11:30.
We look forward to seeing you there. Please help us encourage our readers and their hard work.
