Teachers can access extra resources online including a PDF version of the tale.
Teaching students about fire prevention is an essential life skill. This straightforward and engaging app is the perfect way to introduce the topic to students. It’s a great jumping off place for conversations about making smart choices and staying safe.

If you’re looking for a way to engage students with Common Core content you’ll want to check out Common Core Quest. Students are awarded ribbons for each Common Core Math and English Language Arts standard when they pass a level. If a student doesn’t demonstrate mastery they are directed to specific resources, like videos and games, to help them practice the skills they need to succeed at each level.
With a personalized learning plan for each student in your class, kids can work at their own level as they master content. Teachers have access to data to help plan interventions and direct their instruction. By earning badges and ribbons for successfully completing each level, student engagement and motivation is sure to increase inside and outside of your classroom. Common Core Quest is great for supporting struggling students and providing enrichment opportunities for children working above grade level. Created by OpenEd, this app gives students and teachers access to high quality learning materials.
