School Zone software is whiteboard-friendly! Julie Chapman, owner/director of Miss Julie’s Early Childhood Education Academy in Indianapolis, uses School Zone software with interactive whiteboards in her everyday curriculum. Chapman said many of her graduating preschoolers enter kindergarten with “second-grade reading levels… our children are learning at such an alarming rate with School Zone’s software for the interactive whiteboard, it’s scary—even to me.” She says School Zone software is “an invaluable tool.”

Help your preschooler achieve superhero powers of observation! This On-Track Software set contains the titles Same or Different and Thinking Skills. The pair helps teach important skills, including comparing, sequencing, classifying, following directions, problem solving, matching and more. Determining “same” or “different” requires focus, concentration, and reasoning.  To compare and contrast items means looking for details—a critical reading readiness skill. It also helps set the stage for learning numbers, counting, and math. As part of the On-Track series, these programs “track” a child’s progress, color-coding correct/incorrect answers and giving preschoolers an at-a-glance review of their work. This also gives them the chance to go back and make corrections. Combined with audio guidance, step-by-step instructions, and instant grading, the software promotes self-paced learning. Both titles also offer positive reinforcement through audio encouragement, reward animations, and a variety of games. Plus, your preschoolers can print progress reports and/or certificates of completion.

• In Same or Different your preschooler, with audio guidance, takes a close and careful look at object groups, pictures, and letter combinations to determine which are the same and which are different. Some are easy to spy right away, but others demand more focus on and differentiation of small details. Bold animations and charming games make it fun.

• In Thinking Skills little learners look carefully at the pictures to decide what happened first and what happened next (sequencing), how to complete a sentence by evaluating clues and context, and practice classifying and categorizing objects based on likeness, difference or relationship. A friendly voice of encouragement and lots of great animation keep the energy high and the action rolling.
