This month everyone has gone back to school, and it’s been a little crazy in our household. It’s always difficult to get back into the swing of a routine after having the whole summer filled with free time. Now it’s packing lunches, pick-ups and drop-offs, after school classes and activities… it doesn’t end!
My kids are beyond excited for their new classes, but need a little help getting into the swing of things. Epic! is a must have for moms encouraging kids to get into the spirit of learning.
It’s an online digital library for kids, and it’s AMAZING!! It’s a fun replacement for TV time, or a perfect way to spend car rides on the iPad.
Epic! has a read-to-me feature which helps kids learn to read by highlighting the words as they go and helping them with pronunciation and definitions. The audio-enabled read-to-me books highlight the text on the page as each word is spoken. Plus, there are over 25,000 books to choose from!
Harper and Gray are in speech classes, and Epic! helps a ton with that. It’s a simple, yet effective way for your child to gain confidence and fluency in their reading and speaking.
When they’re done reading their book, Epic! has quizzes that are a fun and powerful way to engage your child and reinforce what they’ve learned.
Epic! has educational books, videos, DIY projects, and more. It’s the perfect way for kids to learn and have fun at the same time.
You can have up to 4 reader profiles for no additional cost so each of your kids has their own personalized collection of books and media.
Grayson LOVES anything about World War 2 ever since we took a trip to Hawaii, so he has a ton of books on that. He’s seriously obsessed with history and it’s the cutest thing when he recites facts to us.
It’s a great idea to set your kids up for future success and grow their confidence in nonfiction subjects, including science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.
From your parent dashboard, you can view the content your child is exploring, and make your own content collections for them to explore. It’s really fun to encourage them to read about new topics you know might interest them!
You can track your children’s progress and they can earn motivational badges. Over time, rewards become less frequent, allowing a love of learning to become the key motivator!
Harper and Grayson are really competitive and are constantly comparing Epic! badges with each other. For them it’s all in good fun, and they love proving themselves to one another.
You can even conveniently print the log or share with their teacher so everyone can see the progress.
Another super cool feature is that you can use Epic! online or offline— so your child can read and learn as much as they want, whenever they want. Just sign up once and easily access Epic! on any iOS or Android device, laptops, and Chromebooks.
I truly believe that the self-directed learning helps foster a love of reading and learning in children. Epic! is specifically designed to help encourage kids to discover and explore their personal interests, which is so important.
Epic! is only $7.99 per month with no ads or in-app purchases. I highly suggest you try it out and see how much your kids love to learn!
