Small group use is a unique feature of the ELSB Software. It allows two or more students (we suggest a maximum of four students) to work through a lesson together by responding in turn while the computer tracks the responses of each individual student. The student’s avatar enters the screen to signal it’s their turn to respond.
The software brings to life Levels 1—7; daily lessons and level assessments. The program narrator and main character Moe the frog, take students through lessons that are built to shape mastery of 14 objectives following an easy-to-hard sequence. Objectives include sight word vocabulary with flashcards, syllable segmentation with a tapping game, and print awareness with pointing to text as it is read. Collaborate with each student to create their own unique avatar.
The software narrator reads the teacher scripts at an engaging pace and on-screen controls—like Pause and jumping to or restarting an objective—give a teacher tools to intervene and maximize student experience.
Assessments at the end of each level, an integral component of the ELSB curriculum, are administered quickly and accurately—and scored instantly! Details of daily work are also recorded.
Many great features enhance ELSB Software: great for interactive Whiteboards; students write their own printable My Book About Me; built-in scan features for one switch or two; and the purchase of one disk-based program now includes a Three Computer License.
