Know-Its Essentials Makes Common Core Easy
Know-Its Essentials is an online program for teaching K-2nd graders how to read. It also has hands-on materials to further the interaction of students.
Mr. Know-It makes learning to read easy and fun! The Foundational Skills K-2 of Common Core come alive as teachers use interactive whiteboards, Ipads, and computers. Know-It Essentials teaches basic reading skills using not only technology but hands-on games and activities, offering the best of two worlds.
Know-Its Essentials includes benchmarks and graphing for individual progress reports and assessment. (Great for RtI students!)

Smart Board activities (or other interactive whiteboards) give children fun, competitive ways to learn sight words, beginning sounds, and many other foundational skills. The material is flexible for many kinds of teachers: Classroom Teachers, Reading Specialist, Title I, Special Education, and ELL Teachers. All types have used the material and seen significant results. (See research.)
Our new Know-Its Essentials is mainly online which is supported by hands-on games and activities. Our original Know-Its and Beyond programs are mainly hands-on, supported by online games. So Know-Its can fit your needs which ever program you use. Either way, Common Core Reading Games are a must!
If teachers prefer the original programs, the entire school can use the online games free for one year. For more details see Mr. Know-It's Online Classroom.
Know-Its also has a Pre-Kindergarten program with kits and big books (see the Products Tab at top). The PreK online games are free for one year!
