Children's Software Review :    Vocabulary Puzzles Grade 1 (School Zone)

 

 

This set is valuable for encouraging a love of words in children. Crossword puzzles, rebus puzzles, word searches, and more, are featured in this CD-ROM that comes with a printed School Zone workbook in the package. Colorful animations and illustrations decorate the electronic workbook pages featured on the CD-ROM. Kids will get a kick out of the program, and they will most certainly reinforce early language arts skills at the same time. 

The format is wonderful: children work through workbook-style pages on-screen, step by step. Each page is graded as soon as it is completed, so that kids get immediate feedback. Children are encouraged throughout the program, but the title virtually insists that kids go back to the pages with errors so that they can correct them! This format mirrors the type of learning that is encountered in school. 

Children are rewarded with arcade-style games after completing a few electronic workbook pages. The graphics are bright and expressive. 

As each workbook page is completed, pencil icons at the bottom of the screen fill with color: either red if the page contains errors, or green if the page was completed successfully.

Vocabulary isn't the only skill developed as first-graders work through the exercises in this CD-ROM. Spelling, reading, and even basic typing skills get a boost at the same time.

We recommend most SchoolZone electronic workbook CD-ROMs, and this one is one of our favorites. Our testers turn to the SchoolZone workbook CD-ROMs time and time again. Excellent! 

Highly recommended.
