Using this computer game to help learn the various sounds in the English language.
"First Steps" is the name of the first game, which has about 7 weeks work in it.
The sounds your child will work on are shown on Islands 1 - 8 in the photo.
Your child will take about 7 weeks to work through all that material.
Your child should spend about 4 minutes on the game at any one time.
Have a book ready for your child to read when the computer game has been turned off. Encourage him/her to look for and sound out the letters s/he has been playing with on the computer game.
Remember to read a real book often to your child and encourage him/her to join in by putting his/her finger under the words and by noticing some of the sounds s/he has been playing with on the computer game.
Remember also that reading takes a long time to develop. Enjoy the journey.
