PARENTS,

     We want to let you know about an App by Overdrive called SORA!

Our District is using this children’s version of Overdrive that is more user friendly!

Your children can read a book on their device and take it with them where ever they go!

     When a book is borrowed from Sora, it is automatically returned in 14 days unless it is renewed by the student. No more lost or damaged books!

     Have your student download the Overdrive App called SORA.

There are 2 ways you can do this:

         Then select "South Sanpete School District" from the list.  Log in with user name and password               Follow (Steps B and C)

                                                           

Let the students scroll through books that are available for them to check out and read.

Swipe to the left to read each page.

If the student wants to return the book before the 14 days are up, they can!

Click on “return” Then find another great book to read!

THIS IS A GREAT APP TO KEEP THE STUDENTS READING!

To encourage students to use this great app and read, we are starting a contest on Sept. 1st through May 24 (last day of school) At the end of each month, the student who has checked out the most books on SORA, will win a prize!

Help your student download the app today and start reading!!

If you have a struggling reader, go to the “Readalongs.” The books will be read to the student highlighting each word as it is read so the student can read along with the book. Thanks for your support in helping our students "READ TO SUCCEED!"  If you have any questions, contact school librarian, Shauna Wayman: This email address is being protected from spambots.
