Hayhurst has a long tradition of participating in OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books) and while things will look different this year we are excited to continue that tradition.

Since we can create any OBOB experience we’d like this year (no regional or state battles unfortunately) we’d like to form teams (3-6 kids per team to make it manageable) with a parent coach.

Each team will read from the list of official OBOB titles for their grade level and then complete two activities to receive an OBOB certificate (and possibly a small prize). The list of activities to choose from will include: a virtual escape room, creating a Jeopardy game, a virtual battle with another team and more. 

We’re flexible about the timeframe (no rules – yay!) but if your child is interested please fill out this survey before the end of winter break. 

A limited number of OBOB titles will be available to check out at Wednesday’s library book bag distribution so please stop by if your child would like one. Some of the titles are also available as e-books through the Hayhurst library’s catalog (Sora accounts). Please only checkout one e-book at a time.
