How PENpal works Speakers loud enough for group work Audio port for earphones or power speakers

The ‘M’ stands for “mode”: switch between published content and self-recorded content Microphone button: record your voice on any page/sticker

PENpal is a digital reader. On the nib end there is an electronic sensor that detects micro-barcodes, so small that they are barely visible. On identifying a code, it signals the correct MP3 sound to play-back. The 4GB memory will hold about 240 hours of MP3 sound; it can be expanded to 16GB. One hour charge of batteries will run PENpal for 6 hours on average. When you record your voice, the recording is ascribed to a code for future playback.

PENpals are portable, easy-to-use, robust and provide a unique interactive experience. These award-winning pens are used in international markets including education, museums and for the blind and partially sighted.

Mantra products for today’s multi-lingual classrooms

Interactive technologies to suit different learning styles

Who are the main users? * English language learners: Huge range of content in 50 languages. “When students engage in repeated reading experiences with the PENpal and use the recording and play back features, they gain important skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening, and assessment of their learning is facilitated. This is truly a valuable tool for helping teachers meet the needs of all learners.” Dr Kathy Barclay, Professor of Reading and Early Childhood, Western Illinois University

* Families of new arrivals from foreign countries: Supporting families with multilingual resources. “PENpal and accompanying materials can help in provision of culturally responsive instruction, forging strong links between the language of the home and school. This resource also supports schools in developing home literacy partnerships as it is easy to use and can be lent to families to work with at home.” Dr Raymonde Sneddon, Cass School of Education

* Learners with Special Needs: “Differentiated instruction is possible with PENpal and recordable labels. It’s perfect for the varied needs of all my students who struggle with learning and need customized instruction. Mantra’s interactive technology is easy and makes learning fun and engaging. It’s great for English speaking or ELL students.” Kris Cresco, Administrator * Learners of Foreign Languages: LinguaTALK Spanish for 7-10 year olds, with interactive talking products for the non-specialist teacher who can sometimes lack confidence in their own language skills particularly in speaking. Ideal too for the specialist language teacher to enrich their teaching with new activities and technology as well as promote pair and group work within the classroom. Gaming activities reinforce language learning in a fun and engaging way. “A wonderful piece of kit. Spectacular, brilliant…” John Bald, Foreign Languages consultant

* All students: Recording speech and other audio adds a new dimension to literacy and greatly enhances literacy lessons. “The ability to create their own talking books is highly motivating for students and there is potential for using publications for assessment purposes and as a record of achievement.” Hampshire “Verdict – Be inspired! This is one of the most enjoyable and useful resources I’ve seen in a long time. The recording function opens up all sorts of creative avenues. You’ll be amazed at what it inspires you to do!” Dave Lewis, teacher review, Teach Primary

INTRODUCING MANTRA’S NEW

LinguaTALK Spanish toolkit! Designed by Foreign Languages Consultant, Clare Seccombe

Contents: Who is it for?

Tel : 001 773 5030376

Designed with the generalist teacher in mind, this innovative new language learning course provides everything needed to teach Spanish with confidence and ease. LinguaTALK provides multi-sensory structured learning for Spanish, with interactive activities to help students progress from word through phase to sentence levels. LinguaTALK promotes both student independence and collaborative learning. “Students will enjoy learning in a

totally different way - where digital, audio and interactive games are brought to paper.” Clare

■ My Bilingual Talking Dictionary with audio on every word

How it works?

■ Voice Recordable stickers to label objects and dice

Audio content is narrated by native speakers. This helps students to learn correct pronunciation and intonation. Students will also benefit from being able to record and hear their own voice by using PENpal. Each chart can also be explored to hear vocabulary on a range of topics (see page 21 for all charts) and then students can test themselves playing the interactive games which challenge knowledge and understanding. An example of a comprehension question from the In the Market chart is “How much are the apples?” If an incorrect answer is given the PENpal tells you to try again. Students have 3 attempts to get the answer right before PENpal moves on to the next question.

Who designed LinguaTALK? Clare Seccombe is Director of Ideas Education. She has been a teacher in Sunderland for 18 years, specialising in Spanish and French at K-12. Clare is well-known in the Languages community as being a keen advocate of sharing resources and imaginative approaches to language teaching. She says: “LinguaTALK consists primarily of a pack of sound-enabled charts, sized 11.69 × 16.54 inches. Teachers will be able to use these charts alongside the PENpal to present new language to the whole class, and then to practise the language. Language is built up from word level and children are encouraged along the way to look at the structure of the language. This pack will be of special use to the non-specialist teacher, who needs more support with the language themselves, especially with the speaking and pronunciation. It also invigorates the specialist language teacher who wants to try new methods to engage learners.”

■ Teachers Guidance Booklet ■ Interactive CD Roms, which include: ● E-Versions of all 31 charts for IWB. Mouseover Spanish text to see English translation - to support the non-specialist teacher ● Picture bank of vocabulary and images to create flashcards ● Mini Book Creator software to create talking stories and flashcards. Software includes El Hombre de Jengibre in simplified Spanish and 3 stories for teachers to adapt with their own text. ● Thematic Songs ● E-Versions of all 32 charts with sound and mouse over to see English text for teachers who are new to Spanish ● Teachers’ Guide

Talking Phonics 2

Publication Date: January 2015

Talking Phonics Pack 2 leads on directly from Pack 1. It enables children to make the link between what they see and what they hear through physical interaction. The recordable aspect of the PENpal lets a learner listen to audio versions of phonemes/graphemes and tricky words, record their own versions, and then compare the two. Once children have been supported to access games and activities, they will be able to revisit them time and time again, perhaps unsupported by an adult during their child-initiated learning. The activities built into this pack focus on learning through practical investigation.

$235

“I found the Mantra Lingua Talking Phonics 2 to be a fantastic teaching and learning tool for all Early Years and Key Stage 1 children. The product is an original and exciting resource for teaching phonics to a wide range of children with differing abilities.” Laura Wells, Ranvilles Infant School

Initial Letter Sounds

Wild West Mix Up

After exploring the pictures and phonemes, the child will move a counter along the path and match the pictures to the corresponding phonemes. Once successful, the child can cover the picture with the correct phoneme flashcard.

This chart introduces proof-reading. The child must go through the chart identifying all the mistakes, and then decide if there are spelling, grammar, punctuation or layout mistakes.

I Spy

Dictionary Skills

This chart depicts a series of 3-4 letter objects which are pronounced when touched with the pen. The child then spells the words using the phoneme flash cards. By touching the flash cards in turn they will find out whether they are correct.

This teaches children how to use a dictionary to find out how to spell tricky words, by identifying the first few letters of a word. After listening to all the words pronounced and the phonemes, they must identify the first two letters of each word, and then the first three letters.

My Universe: Tricky Words After exploring this fun chart, a child will touch the question marks on the chart to hear a tricky word. They have to match the audio to the correct tricky word tile. If correct, they are rewarded by hearing a fun space-themed sentence which puts the tricky word in context.

Jurassic Maze: Tricky Words This Tricky Word chart is more competitive than the previous one and uses more advanced tricky words. The child rolls a dice and touches the stepping stone they land on. They will hear a tricky word and must match it to the correct tricky word tile. If they are correct they can keep the tile. The player with the most tiles at the end is the winner.

Mnemonics

26

Children can learn fun ways of remembering how to spell words using this chart. They can hear the word in full or the mnemonic used to remember it. They can then make up their own mnemonics and record them onto the chart.

Building Sentences This chart teaches children how to build sentences that make sense. There are five example sentences, and the child can replace words within the sentences with words on blocks scattered around the chart. If the sentence still makes sense, they get positive feedback.

Seascape Suffixes Once the child has explored the stem words and suffixes on the chart, they can play a game by matching the stem words with the correct suffixes. The stem words are separated into groups: those that need to be changed once a suffix is added, and those that can stay the same.

50 Grapheme/Digraph & Picture Flashcards These flashcards can be used independently to play a matching game. Children can listen to the graphemes, digraphs and the capital letter pronunciations, and they can touch all the picture flashcards to hear the words read aloud. They can then match the graphemes/digraphs to the pictures. They can also record their own pronunciations of the phonemes onto the cards.

62 Tricky Word Tiles These are mainly for use with the tricky word charts, but can also be used independently. Children can touch the tiles to hear the words pronounced. They can also record onto the tiles, either a sentence containing the word, or a mnemonic to remember the word, or simply their own pronunciation of the word.

6 Silly Question Cards These cards can be used for a simple reading activity. 3 have been programmed as “yes” answers, and three with “no” answers. A teacher or child can write a “silly question” onto one of the cards with a whiteboard marker. Another child then has to touch “yes” or “no” depending on the answer to the question, and they will find out whether or not they are right.

PENpal, Recordable Labels & Phonics 2 Guidance Booklet The PENpal works with all the resources in this pack. The labels further the flexibility of this pack. The Teacher Guidance explains how the individual components work and suggests extension ideas.

Similar Words

My Talking Dictionary

This chart teaches children the difference between homophones and homographs. Explore the scene and the objects outside of the scene. Then match the words that sound the same, for example “see” and “sea”, and finally decide if these words are homophones or homographs.

The Talking Dictionary is also included in this pack. Listen to and see visual representations of common vocabulary. See page 9 of this catalogue for more information.

Voice Recordable Labels Bring sound to any classroom resource. A fantastic way for teachers to develop differentiated resources tailored specifically to their students’ needs. Teachers and children can record hours of audio content onto PENpal and then link them to the Recording Labels. These can be fixed to printed material or objects - photographs, posters, books, toys… Use them as creatively as you like!

Children add sounds to their own pictures

“Teachers repeat themselves 1000s of times. Not anymore with the PENpal.” Teresa Borowicz, Dorn Elementary ELL teacher

Record directly onto each label. Keep a recording for as long as you like and then record over it if you wish. With a different PENpal you can then make even more recordings. There are basically two types of labels: STUDENT LABELS for students to record and re-record as often as they like. For example, one child may have a sheet of labels which they can use for various projects and documents. The same pen could then be used with another child and there will be no duplication. Each sticky label plays back 1 hour of sound.
