Phonics Alive! 2 The Sound Blender is an innovative computer software program teaching students the essential skills and phonological knowledge of sound blending. All forms of digraphs, diphthongs, silent letters and suffixes are explored and explained, including ch, sh, een, kn, ar, aw, au, ith, wr, et and many more. The Sound Blender introduces and consolidates advanced decoding skills to assist students to recognise and decode previously unknown words.
School Versions can be networked. All School Versions and Network licences include additional teaching material.
All instructions are presented orally with no reading ability required. Full colour graphics are introduced to extend the student’s vocabulary. Superb animation is used extensively. Easy to use navigation and great interface make Phonics Alive! 2 The Sound Blender a must have Literacy program for all schools!.
The Sound Blender is a sequenced package consisting of 12 modules. It is self paced and highly interactive. Each module contains Introduction, Rhyming Exercises, Blending Exercises and a Keyboard Excercise to enable students to develop a fast paced blending process. Keyboard stickers are provided in lower case letters for this purpose. The typestyle in the program is consistent to that used throughout schools.
WHO WILL BENEFIT?
The Sound Blender is a unique and revolutionary concept. It can be used with students at a very early age, through to students in upper primary and early secondary. The program can be used with students with learning difficulties, those for whom English is a second language, and those in a skills acquisition stage of learning to read. Its sequenced, self-paced style can consolidate good teaching practice and reinforce an individual classroom remedial program.
THE CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT
Once they have completed a module the student has the ability to print a certificate. The certificate displays a percentage mark calculated on the number of times that the student chose the correct response on the first attempt.
Phonics Alive! has the capacity to record student results for all responses. The performance results can then be used diagnostically to determine whether a student needs further revision or can proceed to the next module.
A 132 page teaching guide filled with activities and blackline masters, plus game cards (sight cards) is included with each School Version of Phonics Alive! 2. These masters allow the student to practise lessons that they have worked on in each of the 12 modules.
