Repeated Exposure And Practice (REP)
GrapeSEED learning extends beyond the classroom. Learning outcomes are dramatically improved when time spent immersed in the language increases and when families are involved.
The GrapeSEED Student App is an easy-to-use and age-appropriate tool for students to engage in Repeated Exposure and Practice (REP), listen and play all songs, stories, and other GrapeSEED materials in the classroom or on their own time. They can pause, play, rewind and replay playlists, songs, and videos. The Student App puts practicing into the hands of students.
The GrapeSEED Parent Portal provides families with helpful resources, such as unit by unit newsletters. It allows families to monitor their child’s usage in the Student App. Families may also view which materials their child has practiced and the vocabulary that they are acquiring.
