Let's Go Read! An Island Adventure. [CD-ROM]
Combining the strengths of both the phonics and whole language methodologies, this Windows-based computer program on CD-ROM for preschool and kindergarten children builds reading and thinking skills through active exploration in more than 175 lessons and more than 400 vocabulary words. It uses an interactive adventure on an incredible flying machine to provide both guided and self-directed learning opportunities through more than 35 different playful activities. Teachers can change a student's location in the reading adventure and monitor each student's progress individually. The CD-ROM also contains a "Dear Parents" video presentation that discusses the educational underpinnings of the program and the role teachers and parents play in helping children become successful and eager readers. The speech recognition feature of the program (requiring high quality microphone input hardware capability) allows students to direct computer actions with their voices and listen to their own voices by reading the 12 interactive books included in the program.
