Fingerprint And Highlights™ Offer Every Teacher In America Highlights™ Every Day And Scribble Press: Creative Book Maker For Free

Companies Honor Teachers with Digital Tools for the Classroom Valued at Over $50

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In support of teachers across the nation, Fingerprint and Highlights for Children have partnered on a back-to-school give-away offering every teacher in America a FREE subscription to Highlights™ Every Day and a copy of Scribble Press: Creative Book Maker for Kids for their classrooms.  Beginning on September 14 through October 31, teachers can log on to, register their school email address and gain access to these educational tools.  

"As teachers continue to leverage tablets and laptops as learning tools in the classroom, there is a growing need for them to have top-quality, educational content, which typically comes at a premium," said Nancy MacIntyre, Founder and CEO of Fingerprint. "We understand that teachers already spend over $500 of their own money on classroom supplies and have made it our mission to give every elementary school teacher in the nation access to these educational apps for free so their students can engage in fun activities that spark curiosity and inspire creativity as they learn (Scholastic, 2016)". 

Launched in 2016, Highlights Every Day features over 1000 activities including engaging fiction, non-fiction articles, original videos and quizzes, fun puzzles and brain challenges that build skills and stretch young minds and of course, the iconic Hidden Pictures Puzzles.  To date, kids have played over 2 million activities, inspired by content from the beloved Highlights™ magazine. The Highlights™ Every Day App is updated to offer something new to play and learn daily. 

Scribble Press: Creative Book Maker empowers children to imagine, write, and illustrate their own stories. Featuring drawing tools, backgrounds, stickers, stamps and music to inspire creativity, and more than 35 fill-in-the-blank story starters ranging from the silly to the sublime, there is something for every aspiring author. The original Scribble has been adopted in 35,000 classrooms and used by kids 6-12 to create more than 3 million digital books, inspiring a whole generation of writers and artists.

The Highlights Every Day and Scribble Press: Creative Book Maker apps are the perfect complement in the classroom. Here are some ideas for playing, reading, and creating with students.
