Illuminating literacy so every child’s future is bright.
Acquiring literacy is a step-by-step process. To help students get from point A to Z, Imagine Learning incorporates the five essential components of reading: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. In addition, students are directly taught reading strategies and then are guided as they read literature and informational text adapted to their skill level. When answering common comprehension questions, students receive immediate, instructive feedback. This literacy instruction helps students throughout the school day—reading passages on math, science, and history not only engages students, but increases their background knowledge base. And instruction on using text features enables students to use their texts more fully.
In educational terminology, our language instruction spells success.
To develop critical language skills, Imagine Learning focuses on basic vocabulary, academic language, and grammar. Without comprehension, reading is just saying words. Using meaningful and varied instructional strategies, Imagine Learning helps students not only understand individual words, but also increases the comprehensibility of the entire text. Through sound instruction, Imagine Learning nurtures and bolsters a child's ability to effectively communicate with the world around them. In other words—it makes them better students now and better leaders in the years to come. The program also teaches kids hundreds of words that they will encounter in language arts, science, math, and social studies, helping them bridge the gap between the two most important areas of their lives: the playground and the classroom.
English Language Learner Support
Don’t just be on the same page—speak the same language.
Imagine Learning provides strategic first-language support in over 14 languages to facilitate and enhance ELL learning. As students become more proficient in English, this language support gradually fades, preparing students for English-only environments. In addition to strategic translations, the program also uses peer modeling to illustrate concepts more clearly. Same-age peers explain what words and phrases mean in rich, contextualized examples. By seeing real kids use key vocabulary in real-life settings, ELLs are more engaged, enabling them to understand each concept more fully. Imagine Learning also provides scaffolded practice—with front-loaded vocabulary, graphic organizers, and clickable glossary words with translations—to support English language learners every step of the way.
Your students need content that’s as individualized as they are.
Because every child has different learning needs, a one-size-fits-all approach leaves many needs unfulfilled. Fortunately, Imagine Learning personalizes the experience by providing systematic instruction that adapts to each student’s needs. For example, the program helps students build literacy skills in a logical manner: first they learn letters, then they learn words. The activities break down skills into their component parts and organize them into little segments—such as teaching kids about sound before teaching letters. Along with this systematic instruction, the program also provides instructive feedback that directs students to apply a strategy they have been taught, or to re-read a section of a book to look for an answer. With checkpoints that determine how a student receives instruction or if they even need it, Imagine Learning individualizes the student experience. This level of detail means that teachers can spend their time where it matters most: teaching.
Motivation & Engagement
It’s easy to turn on. And thanks to our engaging content, hard to turn off.
Through interactive multimedia presentations, videos, and games, Imagine Learning immerses students into a new world of education, showing them how much fun learning can be. It’s a positive experience from start to finish. Catchy sing-a-longs and fast-paced automaticity keep students fully engaged. Colorful characters join students in the lessons, and Booster the robot whisks students off to a new world full of adventure and knowledge on Imagine Island. Imagine Learning’s game-like educational activities completely captivate students, and our achievement recognition certificates keep kids motivated to play and invested in their own learning. They love setting a new record or beating their top score. The best part? With each entertaining activity, students strengthen important literacy skills. So everybody wins.
Support & Training
A helping hand when you need it the most.
At Imagine Learning, our software is only part of our solution-driven mission. We know that to have a positive impact on students’ lives, the program must run smoothly and those who manage it on a daily basis must be properly trained and have all the support they need. When we enter into a partnership with a school, we hold a training session for all the teachers, coaches, and aides who will be working with Imagine Learning on a daily basis. Additionally, a live representative is just a phone call away to answer questions or resolve concerns. Our support staff is happy to fix any issues that may arise, whether by remote access or in person.
