Life Skill Readers

A photo-illustrated reading comprehension program featuring contemporary life skill themes. Ideal for older students who are reading at a second grade level or below. Story pages can be printed from the PDF on CD or photocopied. Or, each student can have their own book to enjoy and explore!

Life Skill Readers presents 40 stories in six content areas: Community, Personal, School, Signs, Transportation and Work. Stories describe places (grocery stores, restaurants), things (community signs) and activities (going on a date). Each story has three, five, or seven pages with study questions. Easy-to-read text is brought to life with engaging, colorful photos. By Craig Booth and Judi Kinney with photos by Beverly Potts. Covered spiralbound book, 290 pgs., with a Win/Mac CD with printable PDF, 2005.

The Life Skill Readers eReader Software incorporates Attainment's eReader software which reads the stories aloud to students with professional narration. Text is highlighted word by word, line by line, or by complete sentence. Graphics are plentiful, contemporary and age-appropriate. A test at the end of each story provides speech support and an optional hint feature that directs students to the page that addresses each question. Students can access the software by mouse, touch screen, IntelliKeys or single switch. A unified management system helps the teacher quickly review or print out student performance data. Teachers can determine reading lists and set options that best suit each student's learning style. Choose word-by-word or natural speech narration, select the text highlighting approach and assign tests.

System requirements: eReader software is Windows only, 2000 or higher.
