Spring CUE 2018 Preview: Learning Without Tears Paves The Way For Elementary Success
Learning should be fun, engaging and interactive especially when it comes to pre-k and early elementary. Students at that grade level aren’t just learning lessons, curriculum and material they’re also learning how to learn, how to interact and how to handle school.
Learning Without Tears may have a funny sounding name but the premise is true. The company provides digital learning products for Pre-K and early elementary including “Get Set For School”, “Handwriting Without Tears”, and “Keyboarding Without Tears”. While each of these platforms are teaching students fundamental skills they need to know, LWOT has created it in such a way that students are also learning how to learn.
Get Set For School
Get Set For School is Learning Without Tears Pre-K digital curriculum. It’s a play based curriculum that offers a full pre-writing program and other materials that lay the foundation for math and literacy skills. Get Set For School includes three programs: Reading & Writing, Language & Literacy and Numbers & Math.
Get Set For School has proven results. Children who were taught with the program’s curriculum consistently demonstrated mastery of key skills at the end of their Pre-K year. Get Set For School uses a developmental progression that builds on what children have previously learned.
Handwriting Without Tears
Many may think that handwriting is on it’s way out, being replaced by keyboarding and device based learning. While that’s partially true it’s been proven that children who master handwriting are better and more creative writers. Many research studies have also suggested that mastering handwriting can lead to better letter grades and developing better organizational skills, something that children can take with them for life.
Handwriting Without Tears uses fun, engaging and developmentally appropriate instructional methods to enable children to master handwriting an an automatic and comfortable skill.
Keyboarding Without Tears
Keyboarding Without Tears is a web based curriculum for grades K-5 that starts with pre-keyboarding skills and builds upon that for full keyboarding mastery. It teaches typing, general computer readiness, digital citizenship and online test prep. When coupled with Handwriting Without Tears teachers and schools can offer holistic writing instruction in the classroom.
Learning Without Tears also offers a wide variety of workshops and professional development resources for teachers.
