As a homeschool mom and teacher, I've always valued one-stop online shops with comprehensive teaching tools. Hootie and its promotional site, hootietheowl.com, is designed to give your child an integrated learning experience of reading, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and audio/video fun experiences as well. The site includes free teacher lesson plans as well as a continuously expanding owl facts page for essays and science projects.
