Book Bash Coach: Mrs. Kathy Crisafulli

Book Bash:           May 12  (Grades 3-5)     May 13  (6th Grade)

Purpose: to encourage students to read the Sunshine State Young Readers' Award books and to offer students the time to enjoy activities tied to these books. SSYRA is a statewide reading motivation program which is cosponsored by the School Library Media Services

Office of The Florida Department of Education and the Florida Association for Media in Education. Each year 15 books are selected for students in grades 3-5 and another 15

books for students in grades 6-8. Participating schools in Brevard County gather at

selected school sites to engage in various activities based on the reading of the Sunshine State Books. Students have fun as they create book jackets, play book jeopardy and dramatize scenes from the books they have read.


Team of four students answers questions about the books in a style resembling the TV

game show of the same name. The categories will include authors, titles, characters, word meanings, genre, plots, settings, and themes.


Team of two to four students creates a poster-sized book jacket which will include the title, author, illustrator (if applicable) and a summary/abstract from materials provided at the competition. The title for the Book Jacket will be drawn at the Book Bash. Judging will be based on creativity/originality, content, visual appeal, and accuracy and appeal of the summary.


Team of two to four students presents through dramatic reading a verbal enactment of a

pre-selected scene from one of the Sunshine State Young Readers' books. The 3-5 minute performance in front of an audience an is judged on narration and performance.
