The programme is delivered over six iPad apps, with fun stories and simple exercises designed to engage and entertain your child, increasing their confidence as they progress through the programme. Each app contains stories built around a set of key functional and high frequency words, with lots of repetition for consolidation and learning.
The Apps transition seamlessly between landscape and portrait, with extra large text in portrait. The text size can be increased or decreased in Settings. In portrait, the child can read the text without the aid of the graphic. The “Speak” option highlights the words as they are spoken. You can choose a female or a male voice and control how fast the words are spoken.
There are easy and challenging Word Matching Games in every App. The level of difficulty can be adjusted in Settings. The “Target” number of words to match, can be set from 3 words to 6 words. The “Start” button loads the matching reels with new words. All words are spoken when touched.
The Match the Picture Games contain attractive and uncluttered graphics. The word is spoken when either the word or the picture is touched, helping the child to match the word to the picture. Every successful match wins a colourful success star. The target sentences to complete can be set from four (four empty stars) to eight sentences (eight empty stars).
The Make the Sentence Games helps your child to build simple sentences by dragging the yellow flash cards over the white cards in the sentence. The words are spoken when touched and the child wins a success star for every sentence completed. The target sentences to complete can be set from four (four empty stars) to eight sentences (eight empty stars). Once the child completes the sentence, it is spoken, highlighting each word as it is spoken.
