LiteracyPlanet would complement and bolster the school's formal curriculum, serve as an additional staff tool to aid their exemplary trained teaching roster and allow the parents to monitor.
The program was initially assigned to grade 3, 4 and 5 students with the school’s language art classes using LiteracyPlanet to focus on key phonics focus areas such as word building, reading, and comprehension. It also aided the students in vital learning areas such as improved vocabulary building, word construction, and basic spelling.
Several Grade 5 students showed a significant and immediate improvement in reading and comprehension. Interest levels in other subject areas were also noted by staff, with on Grade 3 teacher stating “I enjoy the fact that I could utilise LiteracyPlanet in my language class to assist students in different strands of the curriculum”.

Students are more motivated to read and this has led to positive outcomes in other subject areas. i.e. a better understanding of worded problems in math.
