Fun and entertaining software!

Reader Rabbit's 1st Grade is lively and entertaining, with a nice mix of grade-appropriate skill-building activities and just plain fun. My 7 year old daughter does enjoy this software.
Although the skill-building portion of this program isn't as hefty as some other programs but this includes plenty to stimulate the young learner. Skills addressed include: reading comprehension, spelling, phonics, addition and subtraction, counting money, days of the week, problem solving, measuring and estimating, animal traits, similarities and differences, and creativity and music. Activities illustrate real-world uses of each of the skills, making them both attractive and non-threatening to the learner.

In many cases the activity itself actually helps teach the required skill through concrete illustration. In the costume counting activity, for example, the problems are shown in numerical form on a clipboard, while the costumes themselves are shown attached to a pegboard. The color of each item matches the color of the corresponding number in the equation. This helps the child understand the relationship between the adding and subtracting of real-world objects and the adding and subtracting of numbers.

Activities have progressive levels that adjust automatically with user success. The program's 'Options Pad' lets the parent or teacher read about the program's educational benefits and views the user's progress. Because of the simplicity of this program, it works best with young students at the pre- or early 1st-Grade level. It is not recommended for students who have completed 1st Grade or want exposure to more advanced skills.
