The Stickybear Reading Comprehension Series: Science. School Version with Lesson Plans for Ages 7-10. Volume 1. Stickybear Software.
This software product presents multi-level stories to capture the interest of children in grades two through five, while teaching them crucial reading comprehension skills. With stories touching on everything from the invention of velcro to the journey of food through the digestive system, the open-ended reading comprehension program is versatile and easy to use for educators and children alike. Teachers and parents can tailor the program to meet individual needs, selecting the starting level of difficulty, and specifying the number of tries allowed as students attempt to answer questions. The program automatically advances students to higher levels of difficulty as they succeed. A print-out feature provides copies of stories and questions for off-screen use as practice sessions or test masters. A report card option allows tracking and storage of individual assignments and progress reports for up to 40 children. The program can be completely customized and new stories and questions added at any time allowing the expansion of the program for an even wider age/skill range. (RS)
