General Details

Extra product information

FEATURES: Students learn letters and their sounds, acquire new vocabulary, compose stories, make rhyming verses, direct plots, and publish their own storybooks and greeting cards. Students also learn common adjectives and read, sound out, and spell three-letter words. Students learn that letters make up words, words make up sentences, and printed words carry meaning. A special highlighting technology encourages students to follow words left to right as each word is read.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Windows 98, Me, 2000, XP
Macintosh OS 8.6+, OS X 10.2.x-10.4.x (Native)

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.
