Engaging Wilson Students!

Epic! Reading App

FREE for Educators! Awesome app for ages 4-12! Ages 4-7 has read to you books as well.

All kinds of books! Put in an age or search a category. There are books for fun, science, social studies, math, and just fact books for boys (and girls)! Big Nate and 50 Cool Underwear Facts are a few fun books for the older kids. =)

Absolute must have app! Play on it =) Great for sustained silent reading time, Daily 5, or early finisher. You can send home app to parents- $4.99 for non- educators, but totally worth it!
