Amazing Milo's Under-the-Sea Adventure
Friday, 22 April 2011  | 

We recently did a class perfomance in assembly of Amazing Milo's Under-the-Sea Adventure and everyone was so impressed. My Year 3 class have absolutely fallen in love with Milo and ask for him every day. We've been using this disc for about 6 weeks and most children know the play off by heart. The musical animation and the action video have really helped. The children love the voice on the storybook. It has really helped me being able to click on each word to hear the correct pronounciation.
The printable reources are fantastic too. I have been able to use 'Literacy story making' techniques using the story slider and the puppets.
Hope there will be some more Milo stories soon.
