What's New for October 2017


Our Curriculum Pathways team has been hard at work to modernize existing resources and create new ones for you to use in your classroom this year. As always, please let us know if you cannot find a resource on a topic you're teaching. We'd love to add your suggestion to the queue!


Scanning code with CodeSnaps

Are you ready to code in your ELA, math, science, and social studies classes? We now have lessons to support coding across the curriculum. Our new Show with Code series challenges students to demonstrate mastery of certain concepts through CodeSnaps coding activities.

Also new this month, we added Spanish CodeSnaps blocks, which means our popular Navigating an Obstacle Course lesson is now available in Spanish (Navegación de una Pista de Obstáculos).

English Language Arts

From literature to writing, our ELA lessons are the perfect supplement to your instruction.


Is your name among the most popular baby names? Find out with our new probability lesson.


Make science content come alive with our new interactive lessons.

Social Studies

Travel back in time with these new, media-rich lessons.


Los Animales (QL# 1616)

New Spanish lessons for beginner students! Learn and practice basic vocabulary with this new series.

All of our new and updated resources work seamlessly with the new Portfolio feature. This means students work is automatically saved to their personal portfolio--no lost work! Students can also send their work digitally directly to you so you can maintain a paperless workflow.
