It's Reading Time with Blue!

Extra! Extra! Steve has a great idea - he wants to create The Big New Gazette with Blue and you!

Preschoolers work with Blue and Steve to create their own newspaper, the Big News Gazette, while practicing basic reading skills. Players design newspapers by completing reading-based activities such as word matching and interviewing to compile and collect news stories, which are then added to the paper. Reading activities relate to the various newspaper sections and help teach skills such as reading comprehension, word recognition and vocabulary.

In the storymaker kids make stories with cards that have pictures and words. After stories are created they are read aloud and can then be put in the Gazette. Children find cards all over Blue's world to add to the storymaker.
Outside is a fun card game to play with Little Paprika, Mr Salt and Mrs Pepper. Children match cards with pictures and words. The first one to match all their cards wins.

Mailbox has the scoop on some news but the stories are not finished. Blue needs help to find the chicks party hats at the farm and find a flag for a sandcastle at the beach. There are more fun stories to explore and complete at the farm, beach and neighborhood.

In addition to the fun activities, Blue's world is filled with words that are read aloud when children click on them.

Some of the reading activities featured in Blue's Reading Time Activities include Interviews, a choose-your-own-adventure type game, which allows kids to answer questions to create their own stories, and Dictionary, which encourages preschoolers to match words and definitions with pictures in five different scenes such as Back Yard and Beach. Never before seen characters such as Dot, Fan, Sarge Ant and Scanner introduce skills essential to reading in this fun, yet structured, curriculum-based program.
