Learn Literacy with 3D Augmented Reality

Grade PreK - Grade 3. Letters alive® Plus is a supplemental reading kit that incorporates evidence-based best practices to teach early literacy skills. Teachers have the flexibility of teaching to whole group, centers, or individual students. The lessons and activities are presented within a theme, which includes animals, and ties into sciences. Children are hearing, seeing ,touching, building, and speaking while enjoying a positive and engaging experience that increases proficiency and retention.

This multi-modality and cross-curricular approach appeals to a broad range of learning styles and abilities. The learning kit includes a full-year supplemental curriculum aligned to Kindergarten State Standards with 26 alphabet cards, 97 sight word cards, and 84 word family cards that spring to life in 3D through the advanced 3D technology known as augmented reality.

Strengthens Reading Comprehension Skills

Letters alive® Plus builds students' phonemic awareness and phonic skills, presenting the sounds of the letters and connecting those sounds to the letters themselves. In addition, the lessons utilize 97 sight word cards to strengthen comprehension and reinforce concepts of print through sentence building exercises with instant visual and audio feedback.

Increases Vocabulary via Word Building Activities

The Building Words of the software teaches letter recognition, letter combinations, and phonics while strengthening phonemic awareness through word building. The Augmented Reality technology allows students to use the cards to see 3D representations of each letter and letter combination. Virtual buttons allow students to hear the sounds of each letter, blend, digraph, and rime. Students can then blend those sounds and build words. The Teacher's Lesson Plan Manual (400+ pages, full-year curriculum in PDF format) provides daily lessons and assessment sheets making this an easy addition to any classroom.
