Epic

 

Epic has lots of online books for you (including audio books). 

 

1) Go to https://www.getepic.com/students  

2) Enter our class code. (Find it in the Google Classroom Stream.)

3) Click on your name.

4) You will see some books that you can read.  Choose one.

 

I can log in to see what you've been reading and for how long.  So, let's see who's got the reading bug!

 

When reading the book, you can click on words that you don't know. It will read the word to you and will tell you what it means.

 

If the book has ‘Read to me’, you can click on this book and listen to someone reading it to you. (Make sure you press the play button for each page.)

 

You can also find interesting books by searching for them. If you're interested in volcanoes, type volcanoes in the search box at the top and you will see all of the books on that topic.
