How does Reading Bear work?
Reading Bear activities
- 1. Sound it Out Slowly: This is ideal for students who have no clue what the phonics rule in question is about. Words are sounded out slowly so the learner can internalize their pronunciation.
- 2. Sound it Quickly: This is the next stage after learners are familiarized with the phonics rules. Words are sounded in a faster way with no slow blending version.
- 3. Let me Sound it Out: Now that students have practiced sounding the word and have become familiar with its pronunciation, they get to test their phonetic knowledge. Words are presented and students are asked to say them.
- 4. Audio Flashcards: Students can use them to review the words in a passive way.
- 5. Silent Flashcards: These are useful for self-quizzing. Students try sounding out words and if they fail they can click the cards to have them sounded out.
- 6. Audio sentences: Offers a ‘Karaoke’ style presentation where whole sentences are sounded out.
- 7. Silent Sentences: This is useful as a review activity for students who ‘are ready to try to read whole sentences’.
