Natural Language Acquisition
Meets the Power of Play

GrapeSEED Components

The GrapeSEED curriculum is made up of many interactive components, which feature activities like singing and movement that help your child acquire English through participation. Instead of simply repeating or memorizing words, your child will sing along, dance, chant, and even read stories with full sentences.  

Vocabulary Picture Cards

Teach your child new vocabulary words and make it easy to learn the meaning of nouns, adjectives, verbs, and opposites. Picture Cards allow for quick assessment of student progress on proper pronunciation and natural intonation.

Songs

Introduce and reinforce English vocabulary and sentence structures through the power of music. When pictures and natural gestures are used with songs, your child’s understanding of new language concepts increases.

Action Activities

Harness the power of movement to help your child think in English and correctly respond physically to English action words (jump, crawl etc.) before their verbal abilities have developed.

Stories and Dictionaries

Expand your child’s vocabulary and improve their use of the English language through a variety of sentence structures and words used in child friendly stories.​

Chants

Allow your child the opportunity to practice asking and answering questions by engaging in conversations. Chants are designed to be learned in the same style as speaking in regular conversation.

Shared Reading:
Poems & Big Books

Introduce letters, words, and rhymes to help your child build language skills as they learn to read. Poems teach your child to hear and recognize a specific sound at the beginning, middle, and end of words. Shared reading components foster your child’s awareness of phonics principles, proper pronunciation, and natural expression, as they read along with their teacher. Your child will also be exposed to high frequency words, basic vocabulary words, and concepts of prints.
