Educational Gaming Comes to Life with Education City

Whether it's Portal 2 on their X-Box or Minecraft on their PS4, your students are likely gaming when their homework is done (and maybe before...)  Why not take advantage of their desire to be a part of structured and visually stimulating virtual adventures, by enabling a custom classroom within Education City?

Education City's rich gaming environment allows students in grades K-6 the ability to learn while playing -- and enables teachers like you to individually track their learning progress. 

Login to the ERSPortal system, and give Education City a tryout.  When you're ready, contact Steve Woods and ask him to provide instructions on how to create your very own class with individual student accounts.

Kids Portal and Teen Portal Bookmarks Now Available

We heard your requests, and here they are!  Our incredible staff has created distributable sheets of bookmarks for our popular Kids and Teen Portals.  Simply download, add in your school's Kids or Teen Portal login information, photocopy, cut, and send home.  

Click on either image below to download and open either set of bookmarks in Adobe PDF format.


Your students can put them in whatever book they're reading, insert them into binders, or keep the bookmarks at home.  Why not send home a copy for parents to keep as well?  They're free!

Did you know that ERS has an inventory of over 700 quality diecuts available for use?  We've got a searchable catalog of all of our dies, so you can see if we have what you need.

If you belong to a contracting school, you can show up with paper on hand and diecut to your heart's content for free.  Non-contracting school teachers must pay a minimal daily fee for use.

Let TumbleBooks Provide Online Read-Alongs to Your Students

Remember the magic of Reading Rainbow?  Levar Burton's semi-animated books came to life as they were read aloud.  Tumblebooks and Tumble Readables can provide your students that same magical reading experience.  Simply login to ERSPortal, and choose either resource.  Search for a book by keyword or even by California standard, then click to play.

Sentences are highlighted as they are read aloud, and books can be paused or 'rewound' -- great features for English Learners.  Tumblebooks and Tumble Readables are compatible with mobile devices, and lesson plans are included for many of these great animated ebooks.
