COMMENTS: Bailey`s Book House is Edmark Corporation`s pre-reading program. Designed for preschool to second-grade students.
The software exposes children to such reading fundamentals as word identification, vocabulary, sound-symbol association, left-to-right tracking, and part-to-whole recognition--all within the neighborhood of cat Bailey and his friends.
Special features include:
Read-aloud text: Every word on the screen is read aloud, and students can have words or sentences repeated by clicking with the mouse.
Highlighting: Each word in a sentence is highlighted as it is read aloud
COMMENTS (CONT): With its two different learning modes, Bailey`s Book House also encourages two important thinking skills--divergent and convergent thinking:
Explore and Discover Mode: Children move through activities at their own pace, which promotes creativity and invention.
Question and Answer Mode: Characters ask children to answer questions or perform a task, activities that promote problem solving and logical analysis.
Bailey`s Book House provides support for teachers and parents with its on-screen Adult Notebook. The notebook provides information about Bailey`s Book House, and gives classroom and home activities that reinforce the skills children learn while using the software.
