Teach the skills critical to reading success: phonological awareness and manipulation of phonemes. This best-selling software focuses on rhyming, syllables, phonemes, and letters.
The software's systematic, hierarchical design is based on solid research. Ear/brain training is emphasized. No reading is required. The student sees full-color pictures and listens as the narrator orally presents directions and stimuli.
 
There are 15 activities to address the skills of rhyming, syllables, phonemes, and letters. Each activity has five lessons and each lesson contains 10 items for a total of 750 stimulus items.
 
The activities and their lessons are:
  • Rhyming
- choose a word that rhymes with a target word
- identify multiple rhyming words
- identify a word that does not rhyme
 
  • Beginning Sounds

- choose words that begin with the same sound
- choose words that do not begin with the same sound
 
  • Ending Sounds
