DreamBox Learning Launches Reading Park for PreK–2 Students

Adaptive learning math and reading ed tech provider DreamBox Learning has expanded its reading portfolio to PreK–2 students nationwide for the first time with the launch of Reading Park. The program, designed to be playful and engaging, adapts in real time to a student’s level of reading mastery with a personalized learning path based on national and state English Language Arts standards.

The program uses an evidence-based structured literacy approach, delivered by DreamBox Learning’s Intelligent Adaptive Learning platform. Numerous teacher-generated foundational reading lessons are available.

“With Reading Park, we are opening access to an engaging, personalized learning experience that meets the earliest of readers exactly where they are and encourages a joy for reading that will not only set students up for success throughout their educational careers, but also in life,” said Jessie Woolley-Wilson, CEO and President of DreamBox Learning.

Key features of the adaptive program include:

  • Assessment of how and why students answer questions, with lessons geared to at-the-moment learning needs;

  • Lessons designed to meet research-based foundational literacy skills, such as phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, spelling, and fluency, at a student’s own pace;

  • Support for training teachers to use phonemic awareness and phonics in the classroom, regardless of their level of familiarity with them;

  • Use of awards and exploration to entice students to engage with the program;

  • Use of the sans-serif Andika font, which closely resembles handwriting, to help students make the connection between reading and writing.
