Can my child use Imagine Learning at home?

YES! We encourage using the program at home 4-5 times a week. Our goal is to have the students using Imagine Learning 20 minutes a day. Using it at home will help us meet our goals.

What great things will happen if I let my child use Imagine Learning at home?

In addition to the growth in their language and literacy skills, I will be able to see exactly what areas they are working on in the program.  This will allow me to tailor my lessons to the individual needs of each student.  Also, I will be able to send paper versions of the stories and other content they encounter in the program for you to share and work on together!  Look for all of the great printouts in your child's ESL folder!!

Should I be helping my child on Imagine Learning?

The short answer is no!  As much as we want to help our children with any homework they get, Imagine Learning should really be done only by the child. The program is constantly assessing and placing the student within Imagine Learning curriculum based on their individual needs.  If you help them do the work, I won't be able to see the areas they need support. CAN share any printouts I send home with them!  That's a great way to support their learning!
