This extension appears as a purple puzzle piece on the right-hand corner of your child’s screen. This extension will allow your child to highlight reading material and have it read to them.  For example, in science, Mr. Prior will often assign articles from Readworks.   A student can highlight the whole passage, hit the play button and have the passage and questions read to them.
