My Reading Tutor Nintendo DS Game Review & Giveaway

Photobucket

My Reading Tutor based on the multiple award winning My Virtual Tutor, is an effective and fun way to help young readers enhance their foundational reading skills. Supported by university teaching experts, extensive research, and expert video game designers, the soft spoken tutor provides a one on one approach to help players as they learn and grow. Features 4 illustrated storybooks with guided reading support to improve comprehension and fluency skills. Parent mode helps track player's progress and time on task. Interactive phonics games, quizzes, and puzzles provide fun reinforcement. For early readers ages 5 and up

• Instructions from the Tutor introduce and explain each phonics concept.
• Games, quizzes, word puzzles and precise examples from each unit are used as part of the phonics and game exercises.
• There are 14 Complete Story Books to read, with comprehension quizzes to help ensure that children are not only reading, but also remember and understand what they read.
• Each concept is represented by its own train station with its own station master mascot. Once a concept is completed players can travel to the next station, providing a continualsense of progression and achievement.

My Reading Tutor is a fun to play, comprehensive, scientifically-based tutoring program that teaches children to read. This is for Kindergarten to Second Grade learning progression. It Teaches eight Phonics and Reading Concepts:
Consonants Short Vowels Short vs. Long Vowels Consonant Blends Team Vowels ai, ay, ea, oa Team Vowels oo, oo, oi, oy, ou, ow, au, aw Crazy R’s and Multisyllabic words.
