Simply print off the doc for each of your students, for one of your guided reading groups, or post somewhere in your room for all of your students to access- whatever works best for you!
The QR codes will take your students directly to the coordinating Padlet board- no url's needed- always a plus with young learners! Please don't be concerned about perfect spelling, this is meant to be a place where kiddos can read and respond to text authentically.
As for how students should respond, feel free to steer your students in the direction that you'd like and that is appropriate for your group. The Padlets are open ended so they will best fit the needs of your class. I will at times put a question on the google doc or on the Padlet but these can simply be a springboard if needed and are not required. Feel free to include images or screenshots of students' favorite parts or information.
If you have access to the books in another format- feel free to utilize them. Books do not have to be read on Epic.
One last side note, feel free to do any or all of the books for the month. Books do not have to be in any particular order.
Have fun! We hope you'll join in the fun!
If you've not used Epic Books, it is free for teachers!! If you're interested in learning how to set up individual student accounts, click here to access some screen shots that will help you through the process.
