Early Literacy Skills
It’s never too early to start learning.
Building a strong foundation of early literacy skills contributes to future literary success. Start that foundation strong with Imagine Learning. In preparing early learners to read, this program teaches phonological awareness with rhyming, blending, and sound-segmenting activities. To introduce students to print concepts and orient them to the features of books—such as reading from left to right—Imagine Learning highlights story text as it is read. For increased letter recognition, the program includes activities that build automaticity, which is a predictor of later success in school.

There’s something spectacular about our vernacular.
Early learners are more primed than anyone to learn new, basic vocabulary words, so it makes sense to introduce them to all the words they might encounter at home, at school, and in the community. The most effective vocabulary instruction exposes students to many different kinds of direct encounters with the same word. Imagine Learning presents target words in the context of stories, passages, and videos, providing each young student with a well-rounded educational experience. Young students develop key skills needed for literacy achievement through a variety of activities, such as learning related sets of words, creating scenes using vocabulary word pictures, and reviewing words in an organized word book. Early learners then practice recently learned verbs, adjectives, and adverbs by trying to identify them using the fewest number of clues.
