Reading transports curious minds to wondrous realms of the imagination. It determines success not only in the classroom, but in life. Highly popular and successful for over 25 years, Accelerated Reader (AR) is a powerful tool for monitoring and managing independent reading practice.

Games and Activities

Founded in 1999, BrainPOP creates animated, curricular content that engages students, supports educators, and bolsters achievement. Our award-winning online educational resources include BrainPOP Jr. (K-3), BrainPOP, BrainPOP Español , and, for English language learners, BrainPOP ESL. BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr. are also home to GameUp, a free educational games portal for the classroom.

In traditional, blended, and "flipped" learning settings, BrainPOP supports individual, team, and whole-class learning. At school and in informal learning environments, our characters help introduce new topics and illustrate complex concepts. Through the newly launched "My BrainPOP," teachers and students can keep a record of learning accomplishments through quizzes, game play, and activities. My BrainPOP includes teacher access to our Mixer, which lets users tailor assessments to meet all students' needs. A great fit for mobile learning and BYOD classrooms, BrainPOP’s educational apps have been downloaded millions of times and lauded in countless reviews.

Please see your child's teacher for the username and passwords to access BrainPopJr and BrainPop at home.
