Stickybear's Reading Fun Park. An Exciting Reading Adventure for Ages 4-8. School Version with Lesson Plans (Ages 4-8). [CD-ROM].
Highsmith, Joni Bitman
This software product teaches reading skills beyond simple word recognition. The accompanying twelve printed lesson plans are designed to complement the reading skills with other methods and areas of emphasis including kinesthetic learning, listening skills, decision making skills, syntactic understanding, word analysis, dictionary skills, and other vital tools for educational development. Most of the lesson plans may be completed in a single day, but all will benefit from a longer period of development. Some of the lessons may be expanded to cover several weeks as students become more skilled in a particular area of study. The lessons are written on the assumption that the teacher may have access to only a single computer, but the more computers involved in the use of the lesson plans, the more students will have the benefit of the reinforcement provided by the software. Each of the lesson plans includes activities, an area of focus, a description of the method used, the goals and objectives, the materials required, the area of emphasis and several variations. (RS)
