Welcome to the RLS Media Center
"The Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) Program is a statewide reading motivational program for students in grades 3 through 8. The purpose of the SSYRA 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."
SSYRA Book lists by grade:
Book titles on the K-2 list will be shared througout the year as read alouds, with related literacy and/or STEAM activities during media time.
At this time, the media has a single copy of each SSYRA book in electronic and hard copy format, I'd love to have more to share with our students!
