Cross-curricular library of standards based video and interactive materials for PK-5


Espresso Elementary is a large online library of over 5000 resources for teachers of grades preK through 5th to pull relevant videos, news articles, materials, and interactive white board lessons. Created by a British company, the service – called Espresso Primary abroad – purports to be aligned with state and Common Core standards. Teachers can browse by topic or standard to access related content, and can also access simple lessons that give teachers ideas on how to use and extend the content in the classroom. Its weekly news roundup seems to be one of the more unique features, culling timely and kid-friendly news articles and videos in partnership with USA Today.

Still, product pricing is steep considering the wide variety of sophisticated free and inexpensive content available on the Web: a one-year, one-building subscription to Espresso costs $1595. An iPad version is in the works but some tablet-friendly activities are already available.
