Click to Read: Life Skills consists of four entertaining, colorful, related stories which use SymbolStix to build vocabulary, encourage early literacy and support comprehension. Students can hear the story read to them in a cause and effect mode, expand meaning of text and picture symbols in an interactive mode, and can then demonstrate their understanding by arranging the symbols to retell the story in any of three reading levels. Each story also comes with three Show What You Know activities - Bingo, Concentration and Vocabulary practice.
