NO KEYBOARDING! Alpha-Phonics the Book on CD ROM is simpler than many other computer based programs. One big reason is because in requires NO KEYBOARDING work for students. (The Student uses ONLY the mouse) This is best for little beginners who can not type yet and who would start forming bad hunt and peck habits which will be hard to break later when touch typing is to be learned. So they are only asked to use the mouse. Alpha-Phonics the Book on CD ROM lets parent or teacher and the student see and hear the instructions at the same time. Then, with a click of the mouse the student moves to and sees his or her lesson in extra large type without any instructions or other clutter to distract him or her. NOTE: Parents can use either the book or the CD ROM to teach their student. Each version is a complete phonics reading instruction program (The book version is available at Amazon.com) If the budget allows it is helpful to use BOTH the book version and the CD ROM version, working back and forth between the two types. The reason many feel both are better is that they believe young students need to learn that in our computer driven world we will always need BOOKS.
