Welcome to the FCAT Games website.
The FCAT Games theme was created at Milwee Middle School in Seminole County, Florida. The project was launched in the 2011-12 school year and has included three reading initiatives across the past two school years.
Milwee’s FCAT Games project has been selected to represent Seminole County in the 2013 Parent Involvement Award. If Milwee wins, they will likely be the only school to repeat as a back-to-back winner, having achieved the same distinction in the 2011-12 school year.
In the upcoming 2013-14 school year we will launch two reading initiatives. The fall initiative will be the sequel to The Hunger Games. Catching Fire will be released on November 22nd and we hope to again fill a theater with middle schoolers as a reward for achieving reading goals and correctly answering FCAT-style questions.
The focus of the spring reading initiative has not yet been determined.
We have just finished our third reading initiative: The Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum. The site includes sixteen videos from the Wizard of Oz and six videos from the prequel, Oz the Great and Powerful. These motivational videos were used in the morning announcements.

The theme for the first half of the 2012-13 school year was The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The site includes eight motivational videos produced for the morning announcements.

The first FCAT Games reading initiative was based upon the best selling trilogy by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games. The site includes twenty five motivational videos produced for the morning announcements.
