Early readers will love the captivating stories and imaginative activities in Tool Factory Phonics 1! The first in a series of 4 CD-ROMS, Tool Factory Phonics 1 focuses on consonants, vowels, and h-digraphs. Every Tool Factory Phonics program follows an easy-to-use layout, based around 3 sequential activities for teaching each letter/sound relationship. Start by selecting a target sound from the group such as b. Listen to a captivating story that includes many b words. Next, students are challenged to find the b sound on each story page. Finally, learners will create words from a selection of letters and letter sounds with common distracters. Students will be captivated as they separate sounds into groups, select a sound and play the three activities for every sound!

Listen to the Poem:
Listen to the poem. The words highlight as they are spoken and the focus phoneme stays highlighted.

Find the Sound:
Click on all the focus sounds in the words. A counter at the side tells you how many more are still to be found.

Make Words:
Click and drag the letters into the white areas to make words. When all the possible words have been made the program will automatically move on to the next game.
