New Stickybear Programs

Two new software packages from the Stickybear series are designed to help elementary school kids improve their math and grammar skills. Stickybear Parts of Speech contains four drills to help children ages 8–12 learn the parts of speech—nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections. Animated sequences reward users who choose the correct part of speech from sentences and paragraphs. The word lists can be customized by level of difficulty. There's also a print option for printing out tests.

The Stickybear Word Problems disk contains hundreds of different math word problems for children ages 7 and up. It has adjustable levels of difficulty, a print option to print out practice problems, and a report-card option. Colorful screen graphics reward correct answers. And teachers and parents can customize the problems for individualized math instruction.

Both Stickybear Parts of Speech and Word Problems are available for the Apple II series with 48K and DOS 3.3.

Each software package contains one floppy disk, a Stickybear poster, user's guide, and Stickybear stickers. The suggested retail price for each program is $39.95.
