ABC CD Grade Kindergarten-1, Inclusion

Have you ever seen the letter 't' turn into a tadpole? The talking animated alphabet will bring all 26 letters to life for young children. Their delightful guide does flips, twirls, grins and congratulates kids with "All Right!" as they progress through the program.

Activities such as "I Spy" and "Matching" make learning the alphabet fun for kids, especially when they get to see letters morph into objects before their very eyes. The program is designed with simple controls and clear speech so that young children can use it independently. Teacher Options lets teachers select difficulty level, choose games, and target letters for each student.

� Interactive activities make learning the alphabet fun.
� All 26 letter shapes and sounds explored.

Spell Track Workbook
Grades Kindergarten-2, Inclusion

By circling (tracking) each letter in one continuous movement, at the same time as saying the letter name, the learner is using visual and kinaesthetic senses as well as learning the phonic components of the word. Writing out the spelling from memory, saying the letter names or mnemonic as he or she does so, provides reinforcement of correct letter formation and good handwriting.

  Teach Me Nouns Series More on Nouns Series
See individual units below

Teach Me Nouns is for students with articulation, sound production and speech production goals. The series has over 700 vocabulary words organized by target sound. Using the SoftTouch morphing activity, these programs help students make the connection between a photograph, line drawing, symbol and text for each word. These Steps to Learning Programs give you the ability to select specific words for each student. Music, movement, morphing and narration engage and motivate the students to select the words at their own pace and as often as they wish. Using the powerful changeable format, you can place the target words in different locations to ensure the students are making purposeful choices. you can also increase or decrease the number presented at one time to simplify or make the task more complex. As students choose the words over and over, they learn to hear the sound and often increase their ability to say the words. (Previous version was called Teach Me Phonemics.)   Windows/Mac CD-ROMs
