TIME For Kids is releasing the TIME for Kids Classroom App, which offers current events content through interactive images, videos, animations, polls, maps and more. The TIME For Kids Classroom App allows teachers to integrate multimedia and real-world connections into their K-6 classrooms, address students’ abilities with leveled content, meet Common Core State Standards and put current events into context for young learners.
The TIME For Kids Classroom App provides content for multiple levels of learners, including audio of text and vocabulary definitions and a version of select articles for the grade level below.
TIME For Kids is offering a free trial of the app, which includes full access to student assessments, through Dec. 31, 2014.
