Epic Pals Collaborative Reading Project

If you haven't already started using the Epic! app, it is definitely worth a try! Teachers can create an account and add student profiles to give them access to thousands of high quality e-books. The app is available in Self-Service.

Looking for connections outside of your classroom? A local teacher collaborated with others to create the Epic Pals collaborative reading project. Learn more about it here. There is a new board of titles/Padlet links to print each month. Click here to access the primary and intermediate boards for September.

October Tech Bytes

In October, I will facilitate two optional PD sessions on Thursdays at 8am in Pod C.
  • Thursday, October 6th (Focus will be on the basics of Twitter)
  • Thursday, October 20th (Focus will be on Seesaw digital portfolios)

Please bring your Mac and iPad to both sessions. Hope to see you there!
