Rules for Presenting Alphabet Game, Transition Exercises, Lesson 104, and Teaching m, f, e, r
The Alphabet Game can be used as a Placement Test. The Funnix program assumes that the child starts with some knowledge of letter names (not merely the ability to recite the alphabet, but to identify some letters). If you are not sure if your child is prepared to start Funnix, download the Alphabet Game and test your child. If your child needs work on letter names, use the Alphabet Game to teach the letter names that appear early in Funnix.
Teach the Letter Names
If children place at Funnix Beginning Reading Lesson 101 or Funnix 2 lesson 1, 30 or 57, present all five of the Transition Exercises. These five exercises can be presented in about ten minutes.
TEACHING M, F, E, R
The download consists of 3 days of instruction, with 3 exercises presented each day. When children are firm with the letters m f e r present the Alphabet Game for the letter o. When children can easily identify e f m o r from the Alphabet Game you are ready to begin Funnix Beginning Reading.
