Thematic Short Stories Volume 2:
Students expand on the Anchor Story with three fables that connect to its literary themes. Students view a video rendition of the fables. In the Workshop, they write a book after engaging in sequencing, speaking, and reading activities. Students easily save their work and return to the program, using writing, editing, and publishing tools to create their own stories.

Sing Along Books, Rhyming Books and Sound Books teach and reinforce early reading mechanics concepts. Twenty stories focus on complex and abstract vowel sounds and developing sight reading vocabularies. Students are supported with highlighted text, clear audio pronunciation, options for word syllabication, and a recording" studio.
**Creating Original Stories **Volume 4:
Three story starters let students continue to develop writing skills in a supported workshop environment. Art and sound tools encourage students to publish stories based on these or other literary themes.
