What is it?

The Ultimate Book Challenge is a reading competition designed to improve reading and comprehension while also building enthusiasm for reading. Students will compete individually and in teams to show their knowledge of 10 preselected books. The challenge books are a mixture of current Bluebonnet books (1-6 below) and former Bluebonnet books (7-10 below).

Who can compete?

Students in 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade are eligible for the competition.

When does it start?

Students will be given an introduction to the competition at the beginning of the school year. Following the presentation, students that are interested can sign up online. Paper copies will also be available upon request. Once the form is completed, students can begin checking out 1 challnege book at a time. Students can continue to join throughout the month of September.

How will teams be formed?

In November, all participants who have read at least three Battle books will take a quiz over the ALL the books. This is to give them exposure to the type of questions that they will see in the competition and allow them to make a decision of whether they are committed to continue reading and become a team member. Students that choose to continue will be placed on a Battle team. Teams will be made up of 6 students (multi and single grade level teams).

When is the schoolwide battle?

In December, the student Battle teams at Seven Hills will compete against each other to determine our Seven Hills Champion Battle Team.

When is the district battle?

In early February, our Seven Hills Ultimate Book Challenge team will compete against the other elementary school's Battle of the Books teams to declare a district winner.
