Skills mastery in Reading, Math and Language Arts is in reach for them through the Kid's College individualized approach to learning.

For migrant students of all ages, the Kid's College flexible approach to instruction allows 24/7 access to Literacy and Math skills practice online wherever they go. All they need is an Internet connection and a simple login code! The Kid's College STRIDE adaptive technology enables them to embark on an individualized path of learning that provides foundational and remedial instruction where it is needed, and then accelerates them to more challenging levels of curriculum as they progressively master basic skill strands.
Meanwhile, as a migrant educator or administrator, you can easily track your students' progress through student reports that are automatically emailed to you weekly. Kid's College provides the consistency of learning to meet your migrant students' unique needs, and easily monitors their time-on-task and skills proficiencies for you. The engaging sports games provide positive reinforcement to motivate students as they connect and compete with their peers across the nation in online Kid's College Contests. The digital game-based strategy for learning has proven not only to raise test scores, but build confidence and improve behavior.
Accommodating Diverse English Language Learners

From one ELL student to another, acquiring a new language is a very different experience for each individual learner. Their speed and fluency with the new language will vary, and many will work at different grade levels than their ELL peers in specific skill strands.
A first step in working with an ELL student is to validate prior knowledge and academic experiences. Kid's College diagnostic assessments can assist by identifying grade-level mastery and skills gaps that may be hampering the student's foundation of understanding. Following assessment, the Kid's College adaptive technology prescribes differentiated instruction for each individual student based on his or her academic needs.
Most ELL educators agree that early on, ELL students need to hear the spoken words and develop oral language skills in English, before they learn to read and write English. Kid's College provides automatic voiceover to read aloud the questions, passages and answer choices as a student works within the Kid's College program.
Kid's College provides self-paced, differentiated and prescriptive instruction to help ELL students develop basic skills and confidence in their ability to learn that will serve them well throughout their lives. ELL and migrant students in urban, suburban and rural communities are benefitting from Kid's College skills practice.
