Learning to read is a snap with this interactive, hands-on, electronic mentor! Perfect for a variety of levels--from pre-readers who are simply learning letters and sounds to early spellers to children who are reading and writing sentences and need some added help with pronunciation. After sliding Reading Rods® into the Reading Mentor™, children hear the letters, words or sentences they've built. They'll also read them on screen. Arrow keys let kids easily toggle to the word or letter they need to practice. They can repeat the process as many times as they need, which helps train their ears and improve segmental pronunciation. Easy to operate, the captivating, electronic nature of the Reading Mentor™ is irresistible to children with a wide range of pre-reading and spelling abilities.
