The PME Media Center
SSYRA Program - The Sunshine State Young Readers Award Program
Students in grades 3-5 are invited to participate in the SSYRA Program. As students read the 15 nominated books from the state selected list, they earn brag tags. If they read three or more, they will get to vote on their favorite to determine the state winner. If you would like more information about the selected titles, click here. You can also click on the title displayed in the bitmoji library above for a book trailer.
Sora and Overdrive
Students have access to over 16,000 ebooks and audiobooks purchased by CCPS Schools on Sora and Overdrive. In addition, PME has purchased titles that are only available to our students thanks to our generous PTO.
Sora and Overdrive contain the same collection, but provide different features. Sora is especially formatted for easy use and recommended for younger students. Overdrive offers advanced search option choices such as lexile measure, interest level, and text difficulty. Both provide an amazing selection of books students can download and read on their district provided laptop as well as on your own digital device on the free apps.
Sora and Overdrive can be accessed through Canvas Resources. If you are using the app, you must search for Pelican Marsh Elementary (CCPS Schools) and then you will login with your regular school computer login.
