Sunshine State Young Readers
by Dottie Smay, Media Specialist
55 Chargers from third and fourth grades participated in the Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) program. They were honored at Town Meeting on May 6.
SSYRA is a statewide reading motivational program for students in grades 3 through 8. The purpose of the Program is to encourage students to read independently for pleasure and to read books that are on, above, and below their reading level in order to improve their reading fluency.
Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation. The SSYRA committee is comprised of 20 qualified school librarians located throughout the state of Florida.
These Shorecrest Lower School students chose to read 3 or more of the 15 selected titles and voted in April on their favorites.
