Back-to-school update provides pre-K to 2nd
grade students personalized mobile curriculum
SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Waterford Early Learning math and science curriculum (K-2) and Waterford
SmartStart (pre-K) curriculum are now available on iPad.
Waterford Early Learning’s literacy program for iPad was released last
year and adopted by schools across the U.S. The latest update includes
some 450 activities optimized for touch screens and developmentally
appropriate intentional instruction. It’s available
now to Waterford Cloud subscribers for free on the App Store.
“It was important for this release to bring the subjects back together
for mobile because math skills have a tremendous impact on early
literacy,” said Waterford President Dr. Benjamin Heuston. “It’s true to
Waterford’s proven pedagogical approach.”
For decades, Waterford has coupled technology-enabled early literacy
software with math and science software for children. Research
shows preschool math scores predict achievement into high school and
are a better indicator of future literacy achievement than even early
literacy scores. Early math can also help increase oral language skills:
vocabulary, inference, independence and grammatical complexity.
Waterford is the only program on the market providing a blended,
personalized approach to math and science as part of the literacy
curriculum. Moreover, the new Waterford preschool product, SmartStart,
blends several subjects, including reading, math, science, social
studies, executive function and cognition.
