In an effort to try and keep things simple (and fun!) for our youngest learners, especially in a time when so many of us are teaching virtually, I've created a Bitmoji classroom that will link your students to the Padlet boards by simply clicking on the book cover. You'll find the link to this new feature on the bottom of the EpicPals Google Doc and on the #EpicPals page on the blog! Simply share the link with your students in Seesaw, Google Classroom or in an email and it will open on the web (full screen and without ads)!

This year's EpicPals will run the same as it has in the past with just a few small tweaks. This year, just like last, all posts will be moderated for student safety. Please see information below about posting. The other change this year is that there will only be one #EpicPals document created each month with 6 titles each month. The titles chosen each month will be appropriate for 1st through 3rd graders depending upon their reading ability and will always include at one or two read-to-me books so that everyone in your class can participate successfully on some level. I'm also working to incorporate English and Spanish titles when I can. You'll also find the Epic collection linked at the bottom of the Google Doc. I hope this will make getting the collection out to our students easier.
Happy Reading Everyone!!!
