Overview of the integrated eReader
Amplify Reading has a library of 35 fiction and non-fiction ebooks that students encounter on their reading journeys along our adaptive learning map. These books include familiar activities from skill games, allowing students to apply the skills they are practicing in games to real texts.
Books for grades K-2 give students the chance to practice their decoding and comprehension skills in engaging picture books. In grades 3-5, the program shifts focus to have students apply their skills to longer and more complex grade-level chapter books.
How students access the eReader
In grades K–3, when students are ready for a particular text, it will appear as one of their quest steps.
In grades 4–5, when students are ready for a text in their quest, the book on the right side of the workshop will illuminate with a Curioso image. Clicking the Curioso prompts students to launch the eReader.
Skill transfer activities
Students encounter a variety of activities within the Integrated eReader, many of which are direct applications of skills they’ve practiced in games:
