Embark is an age-appropriate early learning program that combines engaging, interactive online lessons with hands-on learning activities, and high-quality children’s literature. The program is designed for children aged 3–5
for use in an in-school classroom or at-home setting.
K12 recently enhanced and relaunched this award-winning program to create a streamlined, flash-free experience within the K12 Online School (OLS) platform.
Courses have delightful characters and larger images on the pages for the younger students. Animation and voice support student engagement.
Multiple online activities provide independent practice for the student.
Student online activities have audio and no text to encourage independence.
Offline activities creatively use child-appropriate manipulatives and items commonly found in a school or home, such as crayons, pencils, paper, tape, and glue. Lesson guides provide objectives, activity guidelines, and teaching tips for each unit. Links to lesson guides are on the offline activity pages and the lesson intro page to make it easy for the onsite teacher or Learning Coach to find the related guide. Most activities include strategies for English Language Learners.
Lessons end with a quiz where the Learning Coach enters observational information indicating the student’s proficiency in the lesson objectives. Assessment checklists help the Learning Coach monitor the student’s progress to inform the need to reinforce or extend concepts.
The curriculum features 18 thematic units that are relevant to young children, such as Family and Friends, My Five Senses, and Looking at Animals. Units can be used in full or in part to complement a program already in use.
