title is so fresh. Children will have a great time working
through the electronic "flashcards" in Flash Action:
Phonics Made Easy. Ideal for first and second-graders, this easy
to use software brings phonics alive with color, smart exercises,
and unique games. The price is right too!
Children work through 4
categories, each including a number of exercises. Phonics sounds,
long and short vowels, word families (rhyming words), and
blends/digraphs are the main areas of "study".
Exceptionally clear instructions and narration are a highlight of
the program, and inviting graphics draw children in. Four games
can be unlocked once children have completed the required number
of worksheets in each learning category. The games are decidedly
unique open-ended activities that allow children to
"play" with phonics concepts.
This title is just right for
summer time reinforcement of phonics basics, and excellent as a
supplement to school learning throughout the year.

Flash Action Phonics Made Easy]
- Fresh graphics and
- Easy to use.
- Holds tremendous appeal
as it helps children practice basic phonics.
- Only one activity was
somewhat difficult to understand -- children need to
discriminate between blends and digraphs and children in
the target age group had some trouble doing so.
