Scholastic True Flix

If you live in Murfreesboro, TN, you have to take advantage of our free subscription of Scholastic True Flix through Linebaugh Library! All you need is your library card number to get started!  True Flix offers many great resources that are ready to use immediately on your SMART board.  The eighty-four titles are all nonfiction and include science, social studies, geography, people, government, science experiments, and more.  I would suggest using the titles with 3rd-6th grade students.  Because there is so much information in the text, one of my third grade teacher friends helped me create this web to organize the information in the book as you are reading together with your students.  This can easily be changed to fit any book available through the program by changing the headings in the web to match the table of contents in the book.  All of the titles are paired with an introductory video a quiz and vocabulary practice that you can complete before and after you read.  You can also visit the downloadable documents to customize letters about True Flix for your teachers and parents.
If you have used True Flix in a creative way, please share your ideas!
