Throwback Thursday: Epic! Books

This is the second time we're throwing it back to Epic! books. They bring so much to your classroom that we're doing it again! Here is the 1st post & 2nd post. Epic! is a great resource that offers thousands of ebooks for K-5 students on their iPad app or website and is 100% free for teachers.

Some benefits:

  • Provides another way for children to fall in love with reading.
  • Many genres at all levels of reading.
  • Could use it for research purposes.
  • Allows for differentiation because you choose your books based on reading level/age.
  • Has Spanish & bilingual Spanish/English book options
Recently Epic! added a few new features, one of which is Collections. These are personalized book collections that a teacher can curate and push out to their class. There are also featured collections already chosen that you can pick from.

Epic! has also added some new teacher resources, like a parent letter, lesson plans, and teacher tips.
