Extensive Word-Decoding Practice
Designed to support and enhance the basic word-decoding skills taught in Level Three Print, the software follows the same lesson pedagogy but presents the skills in a different format to promote generalization. The software leads students through a series of games that teach letter-sound correspondences. Using the visual metaphor of building, students then separate known sight words into onsets and rimes and use the word parts to construct new words. Level Three Software is focused on supporting students in learning the difficult skill of blending. Narration guides students throughout the experience, pronouncing the various onsets, rimes, and words, and offering praise and encouragement.
Fiction and Nonfiction Books
Level Three Software contains a digital library of the 10 fiction and 10 nonfiction books featured in Level Three Print. Special features include highlighted text and picture support for word comprehension. Each book is accompanied by comprehension activities and practice in fluency.
Modified Writing Opportunities
For many students with cognitive disabilities, writing is a challenging task. For these students, Level Three Software includes modified writing opportunities not available in the print edition.
Level Three Software delivers assessments for prescriptive placement, progress monitoring, and skills mastery. These allow the teacher to individualize instruction for each student and document achievement.
Accessibility Features and Modifications
Several feature sets are included in Level Three Software to enhance accessibility. These include single-switch and scan options; instructional leveling so teachers can move forward and back in the curriculum for reteach/review; and progressive audio and visual re-prompting to beckon a response from the student.
