Each title has a CD that provides 50 reading passages (25 fiction/25 nonfiction) and 101 "drag and drop" activities to reinforce learning in comprehension, vocabulary, story maps, and more. The standards-based activities come in three different formats: matching, sorting, and sequencing.
These "fully interactive" products are more than just "whiteboard friendly" or "whiteboard compatible." Because they are "fully interactive," they have these 3 distinct characteristics:
1) They require students to take action, dragging and dropping bits of information into place.
2) The activities are self-correcting, providing immediate feedback to the student, with or without the benefit of teacher involvement. Thus they are ideal for learning centers and individual computers as well as whiteboards.
3) The products have been developed to work on ALL interactive whiteboards, including but not limited to SMART, Promethean, Mimio, Starboard, Hitachi.

The program loads up ok but when I click on a game nothing happens! I don't know whether it is a bad CD or what might be wrong. I either need a new CD or my money back. I have tried the CD on several computers and the same thing happens each time; it loads up just fine but nothing happens when I click on the game title to start a game. Any ideas what might be wrong?
