        AIM Kit Portal (two-year subscription)

        The Portal contains aspects of the content found in the Guides (videos, songs, e-readers, listening activities). You review the Portal in order to learn the gestures, view and learn the dances, songs and raps as well as the intended dramatization of the play. You are provided with 32 complimentary student logins, so students may review the content of the Kit at home. This will support your ability to implement the program most effectively – if students watch even 2-5 minutes several times a week, you will see a significant impact! Possibilities for parent involvement increases with the Portal. The school-home sharing has such a positive influence on student success.
