    There are so many great resources right now for ebooks!

    Here are a few top ones I can think of:
    Sora
    Your local library's online ebook program (like Libby)
    Audible is offering a ton for free
    Oxford Owl Books
    https://www.gutenberg.org/


    She should also check with her librarian who may already purchase subscriptions to online programs.

    Hello,

    Our 6-12 students have been using the Junior Library Guild. It's been a great free resource!

    Thank you!

    Hi Kara,
    This is a great question considering the definite need for texts.  I am attaching a link to online reading resources that will hopefully be of help:  bit.ly/onlinereadingresources1.      The resources include books/novels, but there are also sources for great articles.  With respect to articles, Newsela is especially helpful as there are articles in Spanish and articles can be assigned to different lexile levels (same content, leveled lexiles)

    I hope that this helps -- please feel free to reply if you have any questions and/or if you have found some resources that I could add to our list.
