A New Zealand Made Product
Steps Network Edition
Our software program, Steps, is specifically designed to reinforce both First Steps and Steps to Literacy. It contains all of the lists already, together with a set of exercises and games which children just need to work through.
There are also extra banks, including a Wordlist bank, which contains ready-made literacy courses and a variety of wordlists which teachers can just 'dip into' as necessary. This includes word families, spelling patterns/rules, ESOL/topic lists, homophones and high frequency lists. There is the facility to add your own lists, including sentences. This enables you to customize Steps to reinforce any teaching approach/materials.
The General bank contains a variety of additional activities, covering letter formation, handwriting, alphabet and numeric sequencing, reversals, spelling patterns, directionality and rote sequences.
The Spelling Test sections enables you to test the learner's spelling, using standardized, normed tests. This will tell you an accurate spelling age for the learner and also tell you which level of the course the learner should start on.
Steps comes in two different editions. Home is designed for parents, and Network is designed for schools and tuition centres. Tuition centres need to contact us directly for information about our commercial licence.
Network Edition has unlimited users at one site. The Network Edition license covers a single site. To use Steps Network on further sites will require additional licenses to be purchased. DVD is not required for use.
