General Introduction

Please see ANSWER BACK FACTFILE 500: ARITHMETIC for this introduction.



This FACTFILE 500 pack has been compiled by a teacher of very young children aware of the most common difficulties encountered at this stage of learning. It approaches these problems in a wide variety of ways including spelling words from definitions, finding missing letters and identification of incorrectly spelled words. This FACTFILE is also specifically designed to develop the reading skills of children whilst aiding spelling ability and promoting a more independent approach towards spelling.



500 Multiple choice questions on the following topics:


  SL1    Common Problems                 SL11   Ourselves

  SL2    Endings                         SL12   People

  SL3    Plurals                         SL13   Places

  SL4    Vowels (Vowel Digraphs)         SL14   Food

  SL5    Consonants (Digraphs)           SL15   Living Creatures

  SL6    Past and Present                SL16   Colours

  SL7    Shortened Words                 SL17   Numbers and Measurement

  SL8    They Sound The Same!            SL18   Time

  SL9    The Home                        SL19   Take a Chance

  SL10   Trees and Plants                SL20   Ready for More?


First load the control program from your ANSWER BACK QUIZ, then use the LOAD QUIZ option from the program menu to load the required topic. The filename to key in (when asked by the program) should be selected from the above list, for example SL12.
