Has anyone used Play N Talk ?

Recommended Posts

I used it years ago with my oldest three. It worked well at the time, but I think there are better options available now.


What I liked:

It got my children reading quickly.

We could go as quickly as we wanted.

It didn't require writing, which was a big deal for two of my dc.

I liked the word family approach rather than "word ladders" which were used in several other programs available at the time

Two of the games were fun. We still have those and use them


What I didn't like:

It was not effective for my dyslexic child.

Many of the supplements were VERY dated and awkward to use: the CD's and Ring n Key

Many of the activities were repetitive.


If I were choosing a program today, I would use All About Reading and All About Spelling. UNLESS you can get Play-n-Talk for free. Then I would give it a try. If your child does not progress, move on to another program quickly.
