San Diego, California, May 2011 — Tech4Learning has released a series of parent guides for Pixie, its most popular classroom product. Available for kindergarten through fifth grade, the parent guides include specific and practical Pixie activities across the curriculum for parents to work on at home with their child.
“Not only is Pixie the perfect tool to support learning in the classroom, it transitions easily into the home,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning. “At home, rather than consuming computer games, Pixie encourages kids to create – create artwork, stories, diagrams, designs, and much more.”
If students use Pixie at school, parents are able to purchase Pixie, and other Tech4Learning software tools at significant savings, making it easy and affordable for children to continue their learning at home with the same tools they use at school.
With the release of these free Pixie parent guides online, parents of elementary age students have a handbook for activities to complete with their child to help maintain current academic skills and avoid the summer slide. Parent guides are available at no charge from the Tech4Learning web site at: www.tech4learning.com/parents.
