Fitzroy Readers - New Levels for Desktop
In response to even MORE requests, we are pleased to announce the release of two new levels of Fitzroy Sounding Readers for Windows and Mac...
Books 11X to 20X
Readers 11x-20x is an exciting new level that enables each story, from 11 to 20, to be immediately followed by a longer adventure story, reinforcing all and only the sounds learned to date.
REASON for creating the new level: early Readers up to 20 introduce ten new sounds (oo, er, sh, all, ing, ar, ay, etc), with just one short story for each. The new pack, 11X-20X, lets students reinforce each new sound in a longer story before moving on.
Books 41 to 50
Children who are up to these Readers are often able to read simple fictional works, for instance Choose Your Own Adventure stories and the like. This is a great thrill for them. At advanced levels, Readers occasionally teach up to three new sounds. This speeds up learning without overburdening the now competent reader. Due to the systematic structure of the program, even more complex sentences are soon no problem. Notice how the special (i.e. sight) words work together with the spelling patterns learned. Together they help form a base from which children can 'decode' huge numbers of words - even ones they have never seen before.
