In reading and writing, students use Kidspiration to strengthen word recognition, vocabulary and comprehension. Students express their creativity and develop critical thinking skills as they combine pictures and words to retell stories or compare literature. Students expand their ideas into written expression by switching to the integrated Writing View, and then transfer their work to a word processor to finalize their project.
In math, K-5 students use Kidspiration's visual math tools to build problem-solving and reasoning skills by developing a conceptual understanding of mathematical procedures. Students build number sense, spatial reasoning and understanding of the four basic operations while communicating their thinking with words, numbers and math symbols.
In science, students use Kidspiration to explore relationships between concepts and illustrate basic scientific processes. They organize their research and explain their findings. As students create concept maps, they develop understanding of scientific concepts and relate new information to prior knowledge.
In social studies, K-5 students use Kidspiration to visually explore and understand history, geography, civics and economics. They make connections between historical events and explore similarities and differences among cultures, countries and eras. By switching to Writing View, students further develop their ideas and then use Kidspiration's one-click transfer to a word processor to complete a writing project.
