Smarty Ants

  • Early Literacy for PreK Learners

    An exciting new prekindergarten literacy initiative from the Idaho State Department of Education and Achieve3000 brings free, research-based foundational literacy learning to all four-year-olds in Idaho. 

    Ensure that your child is on track for success from the first day of school! This interactive solution provides everything young learners need to start kindergarten with a love of reading – all in a fun online environment that will keep them engaged and learning:
    • Children start in the “Swimming Pool,” a quick assessment that identifies each student’s current level of reading readiness.
    • Smarty Ants will automatically adapt instruction according to each child’s exact skill level, learning temperament and learning pace.
    • Through engaging instruction and games, students develop essential literacy skills, including building print awareness, learning new vocabulary and identifying letters and their sounds.
    • Thousands of virtual awards to collect and dozens of mini-games to play make learning how to read fun and exciting for every child.
    Prepare your student for kindergarten success with this effective, research-based literacy program designed for young learners.
