Vocabulary.com helps students build broad literacy skills that are fundamental to success in school and in life; skills like reading, writing, listening, speaking and thinking — all of which rely on a robust vocabulary.

Vocabulary.com teaches students words by systematically exposing them to a wide array of question types and activities that will help them understand all the meanings and nuances of every word they’re learning. Even after they’ve achieved mastery, the website will continue to reinforce what they have learned to make sure that it all stays fresh in their memory.

Additionally, there is a dictionary with thorough definitions that make words easy to remember.

Since 2003, MindUP has been helping children globally develop the mental fitness necessary to thrive in school and throughout their lives. The Goldie Hawn Foundation is a not-for-profit organization founded to help children develop the knowledge and tools they need to manage stress, regulate emotions and face the challenges of the 21st century with optimism, resilience, and compassion. MindUP was created in response to the global epidemic of childhood aggression, anxiety, depression, and suicide. Developed by a team of experts focusing on four pillars: neuroscience, social-emotional learning (SEL), positive psychology, and mindful awareness. MindUP’s free membership allows access to an activity resource library with newly launched get started activities, on-demand virtual events, and training courses for administrators, families, and for your own self-care.

Epic was born out of a single question: How do we make books more accessible to kids? As parents, it always seemed strange to them that their kids could so easily play games and watch videos on their iPhones and iPads, but the same couldn’t be said for books. So in 2013, they decided to build the first “epic” reading experience, designed just for kids. Today, Epic has grown into an award-winning subscription service, which gives millions of families and classrooms instant, unlimited access to thousands of books, videos and quizzes from leading publishers to help kids everywhere read, learn and grow.

Gimkit is a game-based program that teachers can use as a fun way to engage with students and mix the way they review content. Use GimkitLive and GimkitInk for quiz reviews, team building, ice breakers, and more! Students love it and teachers can create their own classes and assignments with many customizable options. GimkitLive is a game show that your student will “beg to play” and it doesn’t just have to be used in class. You can also assign it as homework and it will grade the assignments for you automatically! GimkitInk allows students to create posts and share them with not just you, but each other. By publishing work, it creates a place where students can learn from their peers. With Ink, you can bring Desmos Graphs, Google Spreadsheets, Youtube Videos, and more right into your post. When a student publishes a post, they can decide to have their name hidden from other students. Plus, they can take things one step further by keeping their post just between you two. However comfortable a student feels – they decide. 

“When you put it all together — publishing student work, new ways to express and communicate, sharing without sharing who you are, and a place to learn from others — it’s truly something special.”
