#WheresBooster Now? On Instagram, Of Course

It’s easy to recognize Imagine Learning’s most famous robot, Booster. He smiles and waves each time an Imagine Learning user logs on. And of course, he loves to give out lots of Booster Bits to his friends!

Although Booster is usually content to spend time in Imagine Learning activities, for Valentine’s Day he wants to travel to as many places as he can. And you can help him by following the instructions on this page.

Announcing our 2015 limerick contest winners!

We had a lot of great entries to our contest and loved reading your many creative offerings. We also had the difficult responsibility of choosing between them! However, we are very pleased to announce our 2015 limerick contest winners! You did a great job. We hope you enjoy your prizes.

1st prize: Jack wins a $25 Amazon gift card!

My dog is a very bad boy.
He chews up all of his toys.
But give him a treat,
And he’s very sweet,
Unless he’s in a mood to destroy.

2nd prize: Robert Re is getting a Booster bobblehead!

There once was a colorful bug,
His name was, ironically, Doug,
He slept like a baby,
And acted so hazy.
He was really attached to his rug.

3rd prize: Julian Garcia, please enjoy your talking Mike the Microphone plush toy!

I once had a pet named Fred
he loved to chat and to be fed
he loved to eat bugs
and lay on rugs
there was hair everywhere because he shed

Thanks to everyone for your participation! Winners, we will be contacting you to get your prize.

Limericks for the lads and lasses

It’s the wonderful time of year again

To get some paper and pull out a pen,

Draft up a ditty,

If you think you’re witty,

Then share it with a special friend.

St. Patrick’s Day is approaching and we want to include you in our celebration with another limerick contest!  If you participated last year then you will recall special consideration was given to limericks with an educational flavor. If you think you can handle the challenge, show us your seriously superb stuff! We look forward to a litany of lighthearted limericks.

Spring into Action contest winners

Over the past month, we have been running a Spring into Action contest for Imagine Learning teachers and school site experts. Teachers were asked to try our new Action Areas™ tool, and then tell us how it worked to enter a contest for an iPad mini. We are happy to see that thousands of teachers are now using the Action Areas tool! Drum roll, please . . . .

The new owners of an iPad mini are:

  • Kasi Davis, a site expert from Asbell Elementary
  • Raquel Jaeger, a teacher from Whittier Elementary

 

Congratulations to our winners! Winning an iPad is awesome, but knowing how to use the Action Areas tool is pretty great too. Teachers love the Action Areas tool because it pinpoints which skills students are struggling with and provides resources (printouts and activities) for immediate intervention. By grouping students together who are having trouble in the same area, the tool also forms instant intervention groups. So the Action Areas tool simplifies intervention. And simplified intervention means more happy teachers and more kids on track. Happy day.
