Why choose Family Playlists?

Improve math outcomes
Family Playlists have a robust evidence base, demonstrating a statistically significant impact on math outcomes and SEL skills.

Strengthen SEL skills
Students demonstrated 15% greater social emotional learning (SEL) outcomes. The study also found English Language Learner (ELL) students demonstrated 31% greater sense of belonging. 

Gain valuable feedback
Families are invited to provide feedback after completing each activity to communicate with the teacher about their child’s comprehension of the concepts covered in the playlist.

How do Family Playlists work?

Family Playlists are implemented in a simple three step process. Learn how it works through the example of an activity called “Put Together Word Problems.” In this first grade math activity, students practice solving addition word problems.

Step 3

The family partner and child complete the learning game. Then, the family partner records and submits a 1-2 minute video of the child answering a few prompts to show what they learned from the game.

Our teachers love Family Playlists. They shift the homework dynamic from compliance to engagement. Students learn the material better, and our teachers can gain a deeper understanding of each student as a whole child so they can personalize their interactions and improve student outcomes.
