In time for the new school year, we’re excited to announce the launch of the BrainNook book library!
The BrainNook book library vastly expands the range of language content available to your students in BrainNook. The library is a set of classic novels we’ve hand selected for your (and your students’!) enjoyment. Simply select one or more books from the library, and BrainNook will automatically present your students with words and sentences from those books when they play language games in BrainNook.
This is a great way for you to make sure that what you’re reading in class this year is what your students are seeing when they play BrainNook as well!
The games span a wide range of skills — sentence construction, anagrams, synonyms and antonyms, homophones, and many others — so this will give your students quite a language workout, and all using books that you select for them!
To select books for your students, simply log into your teacher account, and click on the Choose Books button.
Select one or more books from the library by checking the box next to them. You can even play some games to see how words and sentences from those books will appear within the game.
That’s it! Your students will now see words and sentences from the books you select when they play language games in BrainNook.
Here are just some of the books currently available in the BrainNook book library:

And as a little bonus, along with books, we’re also rolling out another much-requested feature: word lists.
Word lists are probably a familiar concept — simply sets of words that you want your students to practice (and practice again!) till they master them. Now with BrainNook, you can insert just the words you want into all of the language games your students play.
Simply go into the Word Lists section of your teacher account, and click on the Add a Word List button to create a new word list.
Only students in the grades you specify will see words from the word list — so you can have different word lists for different sets of students!
As the new school year gets underway, hope you find these new features useful! Try it out now, and let us know what you think!
