Walker School is excited to participate in The Oregon Battle of the Books (also known as OBOB). Battle of
the Books is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries. Students in 3rd-5th 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.
Walker has six OBOB teams this year. Each team is responsible for reading 16 books. In the coming four
weeks they will compete with each other answering questions about the books. The team that wins our school competition will get to compete in a regional OBOB tournament.
Many thanks go to Anjie Reynolds, a Walker mom, and Sue Robinson, Walker’s library assistant, who have coached the OBOB teams and have organized the practices and tournament. If you would like to come watch you are welcome. Teams play against each other for the next four Thursdays (February 9,16,23 and
March 8) from 12:15 to 1:00 in our Walker library.
