The program in detail

Sentence Pumper is a simple program for presenting sentences containing words that have been taught individually. The sentence must be typed, and may be presented as a copying or memory task, or as dictation.

Other options include the facility to hide selected letter combinations for the pupil to decode as a cloze procedure.

A text - speech system is included, which will speak any of the words in a range of voices, and the program records all pupil keypresses to save to a record file.

Sentence Pumper and the National Literacy Strategy:
Whilst a large number of graded sentence lists are included, (eg: short vowels, magic-E, consonant blends etc) it is an easy job to create your own material using the built-in text editor. The included word lists cover most of the word groups as listed in the National Literacy Strategy, "List 3 - Specific phonics and spelling work for Years R to 2."
