The Magical Miss Mousely and Clapping Clara for Istation Reading
Expanding its early reading content, Istation has created two new characters: The Magical Miss Mousely and Clapping Clara. These two characters teach phonemic awareness. The Magical Miss Mousely teaches first phoneme recognition while Clapping Clara teaches students how to segment sentences into words and words into syllables (up to three syllables).

Timeless Tales Stories for Istation Reading
Further expansions to Istation Reading include the release of a new Timeless Tales lesson. Lessons take middle school students to the silver screen to study text structures within the context of moviemaking. Students will practice identifying key words and analyzing nonfiction text structures while learning about how Hollywood works, from movie stunts and special effects to adaptations and animation.

97 New Teacher-Directed Lessons (TDLs) for ISIP Lectura Temprana
With 97 new teacher-directed lessons, ISIP Lectura Temprana has significantly enriched its intervention offerings. The new TDLs include numerous vocabulary lessons and 42 fluency lessons incorporated into a variety of literary genres and accommodating different learning styles.

Fraction Crossing” Activity for Istation Math
Additions to Istation Math include a new activity called “Fraction Crossing.” In this activity, students train with Weatherby to identify equivalent fractions, determine fractions equivalent to whole numbers, or identify and understand mixed numbers on a number line before heading to their mission against Pie Face.
