Learning To Read
Jake has spent the morning learning to read with his Phonics School that has been sent for us to review, from Enabling Genius. Aged for children ages 3 to 5. Jake is the perfect age being as he is 4, soon approaching 5 and starting Reception in September. This was a very ideal product for us especially during the long summer holidays something to keep him entertained! We received a disk and booklet Jake inserted the disk getting very excited at what was to come. It is approved by experts and licensed by BBC Worldwide Learning for distribution
We selected to view all the episodes but you can select which episode you would like specifically choosing which letter you would like to concentrate on. There is 16 different episodes each lasting 5 minutes. You can watch the episode for c and k on their website
After each episode we would pause the video and fill in the booklet that was provided Which allowed Jake to fill in the missing letters next to the images i.e, on the video of letter T there was a video showing a T-rex and a Truck.
When that small video ended he then paused the video. Traced over the letter T and then at the bottom once again he had to write the letter T to make the word T-ruck and T-rex .
This is very good and an exciting way for children to learn how to write the letter T as he would trace over the other letter that was provided and then he had to attempt to do it himself at the bottom from his practicing noticing that what was on the small video was also on the page Key points were to 1. Say the sound 2. Trace the letter 3. Say the word out loud 4. fun activities.
Jake said that his favourite bit was when the letters would turn into the animals.
Great product and really pleased with the outcome of his progress and being able to see how his writing is coming along, there’s still along way to go but he is making very good progress.
