The ITAL (Interactive Teaching and Learning) workbooks are designed especially for young learners Pre-K through grade 1. These workbooks are educational tools suitable for this age group. The books introduce your child to math concepts, letters, numbers, word/picture recognition and the pleasure of reading.
We believe the best way to introduce young learners to the Internet is through a phased approach. This approach allows your child to continue to develop healthy social interactions with you, caregivers, teachers and their physical environment. Being introduced to the Internet early with your guidance and supervision is very important. When you use the workbooks with the online activities it promote this type of healthy personal interaction.
We recommend you allow your child to use the workbooks at their own leisure and pace. Workbooks can be used before or after viewing the related online activities. The books are great for use at home or school. They can be used as supplemental material in structured and unstructured learning settings.
Workbooks may be used on their own. However, we recommend you combine them with the related online activities. Allow your child to color draw, paint, write and do other activities in the books freely.
Your child may require suggestions, prompts and some guidance as they explore a workbook. We encourage you to do the activities with your child; answer and ask questions of your child. Encourage young learners to tell you about what they draw, color, write, paint and why. Applaud their efforts and encourage new ways of interpreting and doing things.
