Grades K-1. Students see letters along with a representative picture, select ,crayon colors, and color within the lines with this engaging coloring program. Two different exercises each cover the full alphabet. In the Coloring Book option, students select a coloring page using the mouse. Each page represents one letter of the alphabet. The guide voice pronounces the letter and the name of the word picture associated with it on the screen. For example: “A….. Apple”. The student can then select one of the sixteen colors and begin to color in the pictue. The guide voice tells the student the color chosen. The regions of the picture are pre-defined, but the student determines what color the region will be by choosing a color and clicking with the mouse somewhere in a region. The student must then “color” in the region with the mouse just as they would with a crayon. There is also an eraser which works just like a real eraser. The student may go forward or backward through the alphabet. The second option is a “Mystery Picture” which starts out all black and must be colored in to reveal both the picture and the letter of the alphabet it represents. A very friendly and engaging program, The Electric Coloring Book helps with letter recognition, pronunciation, word association, and color identification, as well as reinforcing fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, structured activity, creativity and color differentiation.
