2018-2019 Sunshine State Young Reader Award Books-Battle of the BooksThe 2018-19 SSYRA- Battle of the Books
Students this year will read ALL 15 SSYRA books, and the format of questions is again more complex with Title, Author and Content questions. The game format itself has changed as well with the inclusion of Cranium Core. We encourage students to take a Reading Counts test on each book after they finish reading it. Students may begin reading the books as soon as possible, including over the summer. Copies of these books are available at most local public libraries NOW and are available as eBooks available on Maximo's Destiny Site (destiny.pcsb.org and select Maximo Elem and then students login with their R2.D2 and s.password). They will be available at our school media center a few weeks after students return to school for the 2018-19 school year.Below is a list of all 15 books (Sunshine State Readers).When you click on a title, you will be directed to the author's website, where there is information on the author and on the books.
