Interactive software to help teach reading
Each page of the Stage 2 First Phonics Stories is presented on screen. The child is able to move through each story on screen by clicking on a button using the mouse. Roderick Hunt's text is narrated either as a whole page, individual sentence or individual word depending on choice, with each word being highlighted individually as narrated. On every page Alex Brychta's illustrations have a lively animation and sound effect.
In addition to the six First Phonics Talking Stories and their individual activities, there are three lively new Phonics Fun activities: Bingo, Chip's Letter Boxes and Jigsaw. These are accessed via a separate menu and with their own set of comprehensively variable Teacher Options. Each activity has two levels of difficulty and uses a variety of words and pictures.
