The opportunities afforded by interactive technology are exploited to good effect in these Smart Phonics CD-ROMs. This software adds to you phonics programme by creating a complete multi-sensory and multimedia learning experience! There are 3 CD-Rom available covering alphabet and digraph beginnings, digraph endings and blends, and trigraphs and vowel phonemes. Each programme follows a clear layout based on three activities for teaching each letter-sound relationship. These include listen to the poems, finding the sounds and making words. The multi-sensory benefits are apparent for both teaching and learning. The 'make words' section supports technical skill development in enunciating phonemes. The 'listen to the poem' section provides children with exposure to print where hearing and seeing text occurs simultaneously. The 'find the sound' section encourages children to discover the target phoneme kinaesthetically whilst building phonemic awareness. These CD-ROMs fire children's interest, making sure they receive praise for effort and achievement. Often, success is its own reward. For example, children with take pride in demonstrating phonics skills, becoming confident communicators, and by showing positive attitudes to reading and writing. This type of practice is what the Primary National Strategy has described as 'quality first teaching.'
