Grade K - 2 (Age 5 - 7)
Waterford Early Learning
Waterford Early Learning is a self-paced, comprehensive, technology-based early reading and math/science program with integrated assessments. Instruction is designed to be student-friendly for independent use and includes a rich multi-media platform with activities, books, and songs to enhance learning. Personalized learning software adapts automatically to give each student a unique learning experience tailored to his or her own skill level and pace.
Parents are given a mentor account to view reports/progress throughout the year.
Defaults to 1 session per day -- up to 30 minutes. Waterford only allows us to assign a student to work from 12-30 minutes on a session, so we default everyone to the maximum of 30 minutes. It is also defaulted to access 1 session per day, but we can set the session max to 8 per day.
Traditionally Waterford does not recommend that students use the program excessively or exceed 30 minutes per day. Studies within their test program have shown that students retain the information better by playing 15-20 minute sessions 5-6 times a week. This helps keep students from burning out or becoming bored with the program.
