OES Big Read Program

The OES Big Read is a one book, one school literacy event hosted by USD 392. In 2022 our featured book is The Wild Robot by Peter Brown. Each student in kindergarten through grade five received a paperback copy of the book courtesy of the Osborne County Community Foundation and USD 392.

The Wild Robot is the story of a robot named Roz lost in the wilderness of a remote, wild island. It is a battle of survival that pits the robot against Mother Nature and the animal inhabitants of the island. Will she survive in the wild or return to civilization given the opportunity?

Students will have the opportunity to participate in the following Big Read activities:

  • Group and individual reading of The Wild Robot

  • Robot decorating contest

  • Big Read Choice Board

  • Fort Hays State Maker Van Robotics Activity
