    WOW! Free tools related to literacy skills. The book builder tool has a section which reads a story (here's a link for "A Tortoise and a Hare") - They offer professional development and multimedia learning tools. ....."A Tortoise and a Hare" - just this one book offers an amazing variety of learning tools including: activating background knowledge, self assessment and reflection, collaboration and communication, action and expression, coping skills and strategies, challenge and support, recruiting interest, goal-centered learning, and designing flexible curriculum. Each of these skills has a specific activity within the story to address it (almost every page has a different one!). Every page also has a question to think about and respond to. At the end it discusses the moral in another activity and the story itself offers extension activities for follow-up. The story is read by a young girl, but there is also a text reader built in, a glossary, and word-by-word English/Spanish translations.

  • The apartment-dwelling familyWestland TerrierIf you’ve told your child time and time again, We have no room in our home for a dog! you could be wrong.

Just make sure this dog gets a short walk every day.
  • For the couch potato familyMiniature poodleFace it. You don’t want to be seen at a dog park. And your kids are more into watching Star Wars over and over again than running around the yard. Poodles like walks now and then, but will not demand a lot of exercise.
