GrapeSEED is an oral English Language Learner (ELL) curriculum for K-2nd Grade and Newcomer students.
GrapeSEED follows the principles of Natural Language Acquisition, helping students gain confidence and English fluency by using the continual language acquisition processes of exposure, comprehension, use, and reinforcement.
WE CALL IT
The GrapeSEED Way
There is an optimal time to learn English — and that time is early childhood when the brain and other muscles are still developing.
There is an optimal way of learning as well, a way that we’ve developed that is specific to how children learn naturally. Its design and development were complex, but its execution is elegantly simple and straightforward.
The Natural Way to Learn
GrapeSEED enables students to develop basic reading fluency, writing awareness/ readiness, and writing skills.
Students learn Standard English faster:
Due to GrapeSEED’s practical focus on ways that language is used (functions) and the ideas it communicates (notions). It’s the same way they learned their first language.
Students speak clearly and naturally:
Because GrapeSEED’s immersive, innovative teaching methods target language communication.
Students stay fully engaged:
through a fun, progressive, auditory and visual curriculum that features high quality original art and animation.
Both students and teachers succeed:
Because GrapeSEED supports the teaching process with clear, comprehensive teacher and classroom materials, full professional training, and on-site and virtual teacher support.
At GrapeSEED, we know a variety of teaching tools are needed to assist children when learning a language. Every curriculum component has a purpose, and together, they make a rich language learning opportunity.
