OBOB SOLSC 15

15 Mar

Today I take my top team to the regional OBOB meet. That’s Oregon Battle of the Books.

Unknown-1

Three of the four kids came second in the state last year. The fourth member moved and we will see him at the meet because his new team was their school champion. We are in the same pool as last year. One of the teams we faced last year were in it for the first time. But this year they know a little more and, I suspect are better prepared. My team is good, but as 5th graders, I sometimes worry they aren’t as hungry  to win as they were last year. They will work hard, and once the battles commence, they will be very competitive. Theya re well prepared and know their stuff. But, just in class, wish us luck.

UPDATE:  Well we did OK, but not  well enough to go beyond the preliminary round. In fact, no one from our pool did. They were sad, but new it would be tough, based on their scores.

    I am not familiar with the Battle of the Books so I looked at some of your other posts to read more. I’m intrigued; what a wonderful way to motivate readers! Have a great day!

      Thanks. I just posted an update, but will let you know we did not do well enough to go beyond the preliminary round. In fact, no one from our pool did. They were sad, but new it would be tough, based on their scores.
