Clicker Tales is a new series of early elementary CDs that teach literacy through traditional stories that children love. The on-screen books are perfect for your whiteboard as well as individual computers, and there are dozens of activities to go with each story.
Three traditional stories plus extensive literacy activities.
Each low-cost CD includes a beautifully illustrated and narrated story, plus speaking, listening, reading, and writing activities. The stories of Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood are perfect for your whiteboard or on individual computers.
Develop confidence in speaking and listening.
Early elementary students feel comfortable with the familiar story structure of these well-known tales, making this a perfect springboard for speaking and listening activities. Children listen to individual words, sentences, or pages and record their own voices as they retell the stories or take on the role of a character.
Boost reading confidence and fluency.
The books and activities offer a high level of support to encourage independence and success. The expressive recorded voice brings the stories to life, helping children to engage with and respond to the text.
Build confidence in writing sentences, stories, and simple texts.
Children have the opportunity to retell the story, both by recording their voice and by writing with the ready-made Clicker Grids. In addition, extensive support is provided to enable students to write simple fiction and non-fiction text of their own, related to the story.
