Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Into the Book

This is a great site for all the Reading points that I am trying to get across to my students. Right now we are working on Inferences and even though the song is cheesy the students love it! They also like how they can choose a type of text (text message, letter etc.) and use the magnifier scroll over and pick the correct inference. Each time they make a correct inference it reveals a piece of the picture and then a video. I am definitely recommending this site to my team.
