Upgrade with Interactives

August 20th, 2010

Picture it: the curriculum is set, schedules are planned, and you’re picking accompanying documents. As a compliment to your trusted favorites, why not consider upgrading with interactives this year? Our world is becoming more digital, so utilizing materials that engage classrooms on the same technical level is more important than ever—for both you and your students.

This year, abcteach introduced our multi-subject interactive section to turn up the tech savvy in your class. Choose from a growing library of Smart Notebook activities, including sciencemath, and reading comprehension, which compliment existing theme units to provide you a more comprehensive lesson plan. No whiteboard available? Not a problem. Interactives look great on classroom computers and work easily with a mouse and keyboard. abcteach has plenty of PowerPoint and Promethean Flipchart files available that offer the same scale of curriculum support.

The needs of our classrooms are constantly evolving, and abcteach is working hard to help you keep pace. Keep an eye out for “new releases” in the abcteach newsletter, and remember that we’re always here for your requests.

    I would like to try to use some of the interactive files, however I’m not sure which program I should open them with as my computer does not recognize the program. Can you advise me? Thanks!
