This kit of Word Detective Games is designed to teach early literacy skills to children aged between 3 and 6. It can also be used by anyone just learning to read and write English.
The kit comes with full written instructions for playing 16 literacy games which teach phonemic awareness skills, vocabulary, phonics knowledge, and high-frequency word recognition. The accompanying DVD demonstrates the games being played with 4 and 5 year old children. Children will also use the contents to create their own games.
The Word Detective Game also works with the Talking Pen which is programmed to speak English and several other languages: Maori, Samoan, Hindi, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, Polish. There is also the option to have Spanish with American English.
The games can all be played without the use of the Talking Pen and they can be used to assess Phonemic Awareness skills.
