The Word Machine DVD

Phonics are made lively and fun with the help of the Word Machine, a charming device that puts letters together and takes them apart, plays with words and experiments with sounds. This word-level work is presented in a narrative context through graphics, animation, real-world action, rhyme, wordplay, onset and rime, and song.
