We’ve also worked with educators to develop Classroom Activities guides to bring the Wanderful interactive storybooks to life for your students. Each guide is filled with activities aligned with the new US Common Core State Standards to help teachers integrate these products into the curriculum. The Classroom Activities guide, available for most Wanderful interactive storybooks, includes multiple lessons tied to that story with printable support materials and an annotated bibliography of great children's books. This guide is part of each App's Premium upgrade.

Each Wanderful App includes a FREE Classroom Activities Overview, the purpose of which is to combine theory with practice, concept with technique, broad stroke with fine detail, inspiration with nitty gritty tricks. Our goal is to link the exciting technology of these interactive storybooks running on tablets, mobile phones, and computers with the reality of classrooms full of children and paper and books and bells.

Each App comes with a 40 to 70 page Activitiy Guide, that can be used in the Classroom or by anyone Home Schooling or with young children at home during this Coronavirus. Provided as an accompanying PDF file for each App, each contains activities related to the story that is done away from the screen. Printable activities enhance Math, Lanaguage and Dramatic Arts, and Science learning all aligned with the Common Core State Standards.
