The child has an incentive to find the right answers, to show dexterity and wit through the “reward stickers”. With them he arranges the beautiful computer “Album for awards”.
LETTER includes the games:
“Presentation of letters” with animation and music When you click with the mouse on the letter, an illustration of an object appears, “dance” of the letter and music from an instrument whose name begins with the same letter! The name of the instrument is visible if the mouse moves over the “notes” image. The letters are divided into groups according to their study in the primer. Go to the next groups of letters – through Winnie the Pooh, and to the next games – through Hedgehog, Rabbit, Turtle and the book-album.
“Assembling the letters” With the mouse the child “grabs” part of the letter and “puts” it in the appropriate place. Upon successful arrangement, Ezhko “congratulates” and gives a prize – “flower”. After three successfully assembled pairs of letters, the new “sticker” for the “Award Album” is shown.
“Playing with cubes” The bunny asks “for a cube with a certain syllable. With the correct answer, different models of cubes are built. When each of the cube models is completed, a small surprise begins … the model moves to the sounds of music. A “prize – sticker” also appears. The game covers all syllables and letter combinations for the respective groups of letters from the primer.
“Falling letters for the words” The child “catches” with the magnifying glass a moving letter (presses the right mouse button while holding it down) for the word shown in the picture. He tries to put it in its place under the picture (releases the mouse button). If this is the correct letter, when “released”, it will stay there, and if not … it will “escape” again. New words with pictures are loaded by the arrow in the current picture of the word. If the word is spelled correctly – congratulations and a reward.
