We are very excited for this year’s SSYRA and SSYRA Jr programs! Please see below for specific information regarding each program.
SSYRA Jr (grades K-2): The list can be found at https://www.floridamediaed.org/ssyra-jr.html. We will be reading the 10 picture books aloud in the media center. Students are free to check out any of the 5 short chapter books to bring home and read with their families or independently. Those titles are Beak & Ally; Cornbread & Poppy; Doggo & Pupper; Sir Ladybug; and Bibbidi Bobbidi Academy. Students may earn brag tags for reading the 5 chapter books by taking a short quiz online. To access the quizzes, please visit our media center website at https://www-ccs.stjohns.k12.fl.us/media/ and click on “SSYRA Jr Quizzes” on the right.
SSYRA (grade 3-5): The list can be found at https://www.floridamediaed.org/ssyra.html. Students are free to check these books out as they are available in the media center. To earn brag tags and other incentives, students must take the corresponding quiz for the book read. To access the quizzes, please visit our media center website at https://www-ccs.stjohns.k12.fl.us/media/ and click on “SSYRA Quizzes” on the right. Students may earn a brag tag for each book, a reading bracelet once they read 5 books, a sweet treat once they read 10 books, and an invitation to our end-of-the-year ice cream party if they read all 15 books. If students would like to try out for the Battle of the Books team, they must read and pass the quizzes for at least 10 books by the tryout date, which will be in the mid-December timeframe (specific date TBA).
