New York, NY (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
Traitor Dachshund®, the children’s book imprint of Minted Prose, LLC, is pleased to announce that it has created a SMART presentation entitled A Dachshund’s Wish Math Lessons Part 1. This presentation was made using SMART Notebook™ collaborative learning software for use in the classroom on SMART Board® interactive whiteboards. The presentation, which has received Elite Accreditation from SMART Technologies, is available at no charge to educators on the Traitor Dachshund website at http://www.traitordachshund.com.
A Dachshund’s Wish Math Lessons Part 1 is aimed at students in grades three to six. Young learners build their math skills as they solve problems inspired by the book. A Dachshund’s Wish is the story of Paws, a fun-loving puppy, who wants to become a boy. An animated Paws introduces each section in Traitor Dachshund’s SMART presentation. Other features of the presentation include SMART Notebook software functions such as hide and reveal, drag and drop, pull tabs, and links. The teaching goal is to demonstrate that math is applicable to many aspects of day-to-day life and not just in formal math problems.
“Paws is a mathematically inquisitive puppy,” said Linda Purpura, Publisher, Traitor Dachshund. “We think that Paws and the cool interactive capabilities within SMART Notebook make the lessons fun for students. For educators, the SMART Accreditation ensures that the content is of the highest quality and suitable for use with SMART Board interactive whiteboards and displays in the classroom. We are thrilled to be able to offer this content.”
“Traitor Dachshund did an excellent job of taking advantage of SMART Notebook collaborative learning software interactive features to make the lesson more engaging and easier for kids to follow,” said David LaBine, Director, Software and Ecosystems for SMART Technologies. “High quality educational materials that encourage better student outcomes are what teachers are looking for and A Dachshund’s Wish will likely be very popular for meeting teacher and student needs.”
