Study Ladder Visitor Review:
This curriculum has been developed by teachers in Western Australia. My children are aged 8, 10, and 12 years and they absolutely love this program.
What I love about this curriculum is that it is set up as a whole system of learning. As a parent you can set tasks for each of your children and all the levels are graded accordingly. There is a rewards system built into the system including a smiley chart and rewards room where you child can buy things to decorate the room and purchase other rooms using their rewards points earned through the system.
By the time I am out of bed in the morning, my son has been on the computer and completed his set tasks. He is only 8 and for him to be this motivated tells me that this system is working for our family.
The system covers 10 subject areas, including Music, Languages and culture, science, mathematics, Literacy, Safety and Community, Art and Mastering Mathematics.
The system is both online and there are printables so that the child is interacting virtually and in a real world setting.
It also offers holiday activities and games to keep the children engaged in learning.
Highly rated by me for it’s ease of use, it’s integration of the whole monitoring the development of your child process and it’s simple and logical organization of the website.
It also includes NAPLAN activities, so that you can prepare your children for the NAPLAN testing.
They preferred this over T4L,it is cheaper and covers more. SN’s aren’t an issue, they have labels in traditional school, and do fine with this…:)
