Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Free, easy-to-use, comprehensive and able to track multiple children; this complete curriculum contains approximately 775 (as of July 2018) leveled early reading, math and logic activities; including videos and ebooks; plus a drawing/coloring space. More activities are planned.

It's easy to make individual profiles for each child consisting of hundreds of individualized, leveled early reading and math activities, as it tracks a child's progress. The games are just challenging enough to keep children engaged. The only cost? Your time and a few emails to set up the first child's account so the app can confirms your identity.

After you create a profile for your child, the app serves up activities, books, videos, and lessons. As they finish content, they earn virtual bugs, hats, and toys.

This app smells a lot like school, which is both a strength and a weakness. It was designed to multiple subjects and is carefully aligned to the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework for preschool-aged children and Common Core State Standards for kindergarten-aged children.

It is designed to adapt over the years as a child grows, and includes a social-emotional learning.

Content contributors include educators from the Stanford, book authors, and Super Simple Songs (from Skyship Entertainment),Bellwether Media and National Geographic Young Explorer Magazine. Parents are encouraged to read along in books, and can view their child’s progress on activities in the Library and set up accounts for multiple children, all at no cost.
