The first step towards college and career literacy is foundational reading skills. With Smarty Ants, you can ensure every student in grades PreK-2 is on track for success from day one. Smarty Ants is an effective, research-driven solution that differentiates instruction in foundational reading skills and accelerates student achievement – all in an engaging, interactive, online learning environment. The program continuously evaluates each student’s exact skill level, learning temperament, and learning pace. Based on this information, the adaptive content system automatically delivers the right level of skill instruction and practice to keep learners in the zone of proximal development. No two students will approach the content or process in the same manner, but they all will reach the same critical milestones for primary-grade literacy success and emerge as confident, capable readers ready for the challenges of second grade and beyond. A teacher’s dashboard makes it easy for teachers to track and monitor student movement through lessons and growth toward fluency and comprehension.
- Foundational skills instruction, independent practice, and embedded assessment are combined in a single program
- Students master progressively more complex phonics skills as they learn to decode and encode phonemes, words, and stories
- Through skill-building games and activities, students learn approximately 1,500 vocabulary words, plus essential sight words
- A personal ant “coach” gives every student explicit instruction and kind feedback
This list is compiled annually through our web surveys, internet research, and phone interviews with California school districts.
