Try the Sora reading app. Our district has purchased a few thousand popular digital books that you can easily access through Sora.
You can also download this app onto your laptop, tablet or phone to enjoy from home. Students can log on using their regular district computer log on (their district ID and whatever password they currently use to log onto computers at school).
To limit reading material to elementary aged students, change the audience to “juvenile.” Go to Preferences on the left of the blue strip toward the top. Be sure to save the setting.
