This reading program combines beloved children's books with a variety of thought provoking activities to introduce kids to the delights of literature while strengthening their developing reading and reading comprehension skills.
Users are invited to explore three stories: "The Gunnywolf", "The Trek", and "Owl and the Moon". Each story is accompanied by two pre-reading activities that help set the stage for the story. Having completed these activities, the student reads the story, which is duplicated in its original book form, with text and illustration(s) on each screen page. The student can also choose to have the book read aloud by the computer, following along with words that highlight when read. Once the story is completed, the student completes story immersion and follow-up activities.
For older students (Grades 2 and 3 ), Edmark also offers Stories & More - Time and Place, which features the children's stories: "Roxaboxen", "Galimoto", and "The House on Maple Street".
