WordParts evolved from an early history of using manipulatives to teach Grammar in the early 90’s. An analysis ensued, a team/entity was formed and WordParts became a reality.
While the early vision has changed significantly, the importance of using 3D shapes to represent parts of speech and creating the “magic” of kinesthetic learning means WordParts becomes a strong value proposition for parents and teachers.
By adding a world-class curriculum to our software and manipulatives we have created a solid “I do, You do, We do” teaching toolkit for teachers and students.
WordParts is a virtual animated curriculum that was created for all seven learning styles that will enhance every child’s grammar and writing techniques.
We believe in our three pillars at WordParts: Curriculum, Shapes, and Software. Our three pillars combine and deliver a unique learning environment that’s engaging to our learners. With this process, teaching English grammar is easier, yet we’re using highly-effective best practices to ensure success, and our innovative shapes support our kenesthetic learners and reinforce conigive skills. And lastly, our sofware provides a game-like atmostphere that every child enjoys.
About Next Generational Systems LLC
Next Generation Systems was incorporated in August 2013 with the sole purpose of bringing WordParts to market. An idea was formed, a team was created, and that team has been working with a single-mindedness to accomplish our goal – that of bringing a new way of learning English language structure to every school-age child in the United States.
Each team member has a history of success; each is committed to this effort; each has a passion for education and children. Each member also brings a special skill and experience to the project. It’s all about people.
