How many books do I have to read? In order to “pass” you need to read one book.
Do I have to read one specific book for my grade? No. Not this year. Choose one block of the tic-tac-toe board (minimum) and do the activity in order to participate.
Will there be a test? Sorry, no testing this year. We will trust you. If you read a book or do one of the activities on the tic-tac-toe board, and submit it, you will get credit.
I don’t want to do the Google Form. Is there a paper copy? Yes. Go to the paper copy link and print one out. Copies are also available at the school.
What items are counted for the Governor’s Reading Challenge? Only books, graphic novels, and audiobooks are counted for the Challenge. All other categories are part of our tic-tac-toe.
I love to read. Can I just read books? Or do I have to listen to a podcast or Ted Talk? Every square gives you an option. You can choose the activity OR read (or listen to) a book of your choice. If you choose to read more than 9 books and want to continue, add to the Governor’s Reading Challenge Google Form.
What is the Governor’s Reading Challenge? Every year, the CT Library Association and the Governor put out a challenge. Schools compete to see who can read the most books per student over the summer. We will participate in 2021. There are book suggestions if you are interested, but ANY book you read will be counted!
Box 5 says “Nutmeg Award Nominee.” What does that mean? Every year, students at different grade levels are given 10 great book suggestions. Students get to vote on their favorite book in April. For 2022, these are the books: Nutmeg Award Nominees for High School. For summer reading, you can choose to read one of these or any winner or nominee from a past list.
HELP! How do I do the Google Form? Enter your full name and grade. Choose the category. Fill in the information. When you are done with that section, you will return to the first section (name, grade and activity.) If you did another activity, fill it in. If you’re done, scroll to the bottom and click I’M DONE FOR NOW. Answer the tic-tac-toe question and finish your session. You can come back another time if you choose to do more.
