Phonemic awareness is crucial for the success of early readers, and this app is well suited for all types of learners.
The app guides you through an intuitive set up where you will be prompted to select a level. Levels range in from one-sound to three-sound blending. Each level displays one to three large stimulus circles that can be set to display any combination of phoneme(s) which then prompt participants to produce an actual sound or combination of sounds that are targeted. The circles can be locked into place to isolate a particular phoneme, as well as, be hidden from sight giving your students the opportunity to develop key memory abilities required for successful reading.
Blending Blastoff also includes the color cue system displayed in the background of each phoneme. This system cues your student as to the place the sound is produced, the manner in which the sound is produced, and whether or not the sound is voiced or silent. Color cues can be turned on or off at any point during the activities. This color cueing program is a key component of the Color Association Program (CAP) which associates color patterns with kinesthetic movements. The CAP program has been incredibly successful in demystifying the sound/symbol correlation for many readers of all levels.
