Changing from a non-reader to a beginning reader is a caterpillar-to-butterfly transformation. This software helps emerging readers stretch their wings!
With imagination and a whimsical touch, this On-Track Reading Readiness software guides kindergarteners and first graders through games and activities that introduce and reinforce important language concepts. Kids practice sequencing, matching, rhymes, shapes, opposites, patterns and more. They work on alphabetical order and uppercase and lowercase letters in lessons and exercises that feel like play! A unique progress tracking feature allows children to work at their own pace, bookmarks their progress so they can pick up where they left off and provides instant grading to motivate learning. Colorful graphics, silly sound effects, and funny reward animations enhance the learning experience. At intervals in the exercises, kids are rewarded with three games: Memory Match, Frosty Fun, or Launch Pad. Which game will it be? Plus, a progress report can be printed at any time, as well as bonus exercise pages and a completion award certificate when finished. To sample this super software, see video clip below.
