I hope everyone's off to a great start :)

If I can be of any assistance to you, please let me know and I will be glad to help.

BookFlix and TrueFlix-Give them a try!

BookFlix, geared toward K-2, is a literacy resource that pairs interactive fictional video storybooks with a related non-fiction eBook.

TrueFlix (3-5) has interactive flip books with more than 100 science and social studies topics. You can read the book then watch the "movie". It includes games, quizzes, project ideas, lesson plans and more!
