The story of Zeke was born in the classroom when the alphabet chart that runs horizontally in letter panels across the wall in her room was not long enough to include the Z because her desk covered the panel. Zeke, the Alphabet Zebra that hides under Ann’s desk, inspired her to write Off the Chart! The Amazing Story of the Alphabet Zebra. The Alphabet Zebra acts as a loving aide to teachers and parents by helping bring imaginative fun, encouragement, and discipline to young learners.

What Began as a Classroom Behavior and Reading Aide, the Off the Chart! Package contains an approach to elementary, reading, academics, socializing, love, care positivity and manners. You use the program that best suits your child's learning style. There many ways to make Off the Chart! work in a fun and positive way to create a better environment in schools and at home. Make sure your child's zebra is ready to work and play!
