Fitzroy Sound Readers 1-10



Ten illustrated, graded phonic-based readers. Each story features a basic English sound (e.g. oy), a few sight words (e.g. said), a revision word list and an extension word list.

Fitzroy Sounding Readers is the most powerful literacy aid we have ever made. Especially for people who have never learned how to read phonically. It directly shows teachers and students how to SOUND OUT words - using a human voice.

The student can sit at the computer and hear the stories, click on any word they are not sure of, and have it SOUNDED OUT for them: unless of course it is a special word - in which case the word is spoken.

The student can:

  • Hear a story, turning the page when they are ready.
  • Click on a word to have it sounded out.
  • Play various activities relating to each story.
  • Re-write the story themselves: save, edit, update and print.

This software is recommended for students who are slow learners - and also for eager students who wish to race ahead and understand an entire range of sounds, as well as enough special words to be able to read the daily newspaper!

Suitable for beginners who have learned most of the sounds of the alphabet. Readers 1-10 use only basic sounds, except for Story 9, which introduces the diagraph oo as in roof.

Readers 1-10 contains 10 books:
1. A Fat Cat
2. A Big Pig
3. Bug on a Rug
4. Dot
5. The Pet Hen
6. Fox on the Box
7. I Can Run
8. The Picnic
9. My Pup
10. John and His Fox
