Word Likeness

MANY, MANY words, although sounding the same in pronunciation, are spelt differently. In this program, the pupil has to identify the correct spelling of a word in a given context. A sentence appears on the screen: 'Umbrellas are used in rain/reign'. The pupil then has to type out the chosen alternative. If correct, a relevant picture appears on the screen and a tune is played - in this case an umbrella is shown and we hear a few bars of Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head! The graphics and sound make this an enjoyable program and the children who tried it out for me had fun predicting what picture and tune would follow their correct response. Pupils in the 9-12 age range should enjoy and benefit from Word Likeness.
