An Epic decision!

The Netflix of books!


...and the best part, Epic is free for teachers!

Epic is an online reading library, with a wealth of fiction and non-fiction texts.  The app allows teachers to add their students and track their reading progress.  Students can earn medals for their reading success and progress through the levels.  A feature of Epic that I particularly like is the 'read to me' option; this allows children to 'sit back and relax' while enjoying a quality text.

The range of books available is Epic! (Sorry, I couldn't resist)  What are you waiting for, try Epic today!
The process to sign up is simple:
  • log in and explore what Epic has to offer!
I would love to see how this app is being used in homerooms.
