Magic, Buttons, & Sci Fi Sounds In ICS  (click title for download page)

In the IntelliTools Classroom Suite® Media Sounds folder, there are three subfolders full of sounds that don’t get used as much as they deserve because you can’t tell what they will sound like from reading the file names. The subfolders are Buttons, Magic, and Sci Fi. I imported all those sounds into toolbar buttons and saved as an activity, Preview Sounds. You can try out and compare sounds by clicking buttons in the large toolbar in this activity. Bonus: A tip on adding a sound button from Preview Sounds into your project!

Goodies Archive  (click title for download page)

The Goodies Archive is a new interface to provide access to the activities that were offered for free download from the Learning Magic, Inc.® website. So far I have made new pages for 96 of the IntelliTools Classroom Suite® free Goodies. For those who are hearing about the Goodies for the first time, you’ll be delighted with the variety of content there. It was just too good a resource to let it disappear!

To Scan Or Not To Scan In ICS  (click title for download page)

By default, everything is set to be part of a scan in IntelliTools Classroom Suite®. But we want the interface as uncluttered as possible for kids who are using switches, whatever their age and academic level. So it’s a good idea to consider whether you want to change that default scan setting on some items. Here are some things I keep in mind while setting up an activity. Bonus: A collection of Read Page button art JPEGs in various sizes and shapes!

After completing this delightful story, readers will be eager to learn more about sea lions in the supporting book, Sea Lion Facts. Bonus: Galapagos Sea Lion Photo Collection!
