Ultimate Book Challenge

Ultimate Book Challenge 2017-2018

Ultimate Book Challenge List

What is it?

The Ultimate Book Challenge, formerly known as Battle of the Books, 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 pre-selected books. 
 
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 during the week of September 11-15, 2017.  Students can sign up through Friday, October 6, 2017.
 
How will teams be formed?
 
In November, all participants who have read AT LEAST THREE books will take a quiz over the ALL the books.  This gives students 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 team.  Teams will be made up of 6 students (multi and single grade level teams). 
 
When is the school-wide battle?
 
In January, the student teams at PVE will compete against each other to determine our Champion Team.
 
When is the district battle?
 
On February 7, 2018, our PVE Ultimate Book Challenge team will compete against the other elementary schools' teams to declare a district winner.
