For Immediate Release
The Professor Garfield Foundation Learning Portal Welcomes MrsP.com
June 27, 2010 - The Professor Garfield Foundation www.professorgarfield.org learning portal announced the addition today of www.MrsP.com to its fun, interactive online environment where children can safely explore, learn and creatively express themselves. The agreement between popular storytelling site MrsP.com and Professor Garfield web site, one of the largest free learning portals on the Internet for grades K-8, was unveiled at the ISTE conference in Denver, Colorado, which is geared to learning and teaching through technology.
"The addition of Mrs. P to our portal seemed a natural," said Bob Levy, a member of the board of directors for the Professor Garfield Foundation. "We have similar missions to both educate and entertain, with the ultimate goal of helping to instill a love of reading in children." The Professor Garfield site attracts millions of visitors each month.
MrsP.com offers read-along options on its library of free videos, a feature which has proven beneficial to both young readers and ESL students. The site also hosts an annual writing contest and provides a host of games, activity guides and coloring sheets. The site features TV star Kathy Kinney ("The Drew Carey Show"), who portrays Mrs. P and is also one of the creators of the website.
