Sounds Great Interactive phonics provides F2 and Y1 teaching resources encouraging the development of phonic skills. It consists of three CD-ROMs. CD-ROMs one and two contain 26 stories and related activities; simple exercises and games for the classroom.
The resources are designed for the introduction of phonics during word and sentence level work and can be used with the interactive whiteboard for whole class groups, pairs or individuals.
Each title identifies the letter name and covers the letter sound. The children are prompted to go to the story first then follow the activities in order. The simple story consists of a few pages and the text emphasises the targeted sound.
Each story has up to six progressive follow-on activities looking for letter recognition, initial sounds, rhyming words, whole words to complete sentences and word building.
The children are directed by prompts and questions to select the objects and words; however they will need mouse control and the ability to click and drag, in order to do this. These activities also help the children to find the letters on the keyboard.
The third CD-ROM contains quizzes for assessment, covering the elements of all the activities. Individual children's files can be created to record the activities attempted and their scores.
