Naughty Phonics 1 uses the synthetic approach to phonics, with each activity having a different phonics focus: recognising the common spellings for each phoneme in a word to develop phoneme-grapheme correspondence; blending phonemes into words for reading; and segmenting words into phonemes when spelling. Each focus word is introduced in the context of a fully narrated sentence, supported by pictorial cue which on completion of a focused phonics activity is brought to life as an enchanting 3D animation with sound effects. The flexible Teacher Options ensure that the program integrates well into the classroom, allowing the settings to be configured to suit the different needs of pupils. Not only can predefined word lists be assigned to particular children, the program also enables teachers to create and assign their own customised word lists. The different reinforcement options and other features such as choice of keyboard layout and style (whenever an onscreen keyboard is used) offer further opportunities for differentiation. The quick setup options for teachers make this perfect for group or whole-class teaching using an interactive whiteboard This focused phonics resource is sure to inspire and engage your children every time they use it. But be prepared for giggles – Gordon and his Groovy granny certainly know how to put the fun back into phonics!
