The Reading Tree Talking Stories CD-ROMs work well in encouraging young readers. The added animations and sound effects are very engaging for students. It works well with a projector for whole-class use or with small groups/individuals. Animations and narration are played on demand, so the teacher is in full control.
Each stage contains approximately 12 books (note that one or two titles may be different to the current series of readers if those are being used in class).
Stage 1 to 3 are available (coming soon). If anyone else has higher levels that would be great!
Installation notes (a quick guide for easier use):
The files need to be extracted to a folder.
Run setup.exe before running the program (this does not copy all the files, so you still need to keep the original folder where you extracted the program).
You may need to install the included QuickTime software (see the QuickTime folder).
When running the program, you should choose the settings button on the main screen to make it stretch to full-screen.
