Summary of changes

  • This release includes two new features in Word Warm-ups Live:
    • A new Decode & Read Along step is available, allowing students to first decode and then hear correct pronunciations for each word in a word list exercise.
      • The new step is optional. It can be turned on or off in a student's Exercise Options. A teacher can also require students to complete from 0 to 3 Decode & Read Alongs. 
      • By default, existing students have the new step turned on, but are not required to complete it before practicing word lists.
    • New audio controls on the Introduction and Look, Listen & Respond pages allow students to interrupt lessons that play during these pages. For example, the lessons that play on entering the page can be stopped, allowing a teacher to interact with the student or change the student's exercise options.
      • The lessons must still be heard in their entirety for the student to continue. After a student stops a lesson, using the play control will play the complete lesson from the start.
  • Small changes to the appearance of Word Warm-ups Live's exercises have also been made on the Select an Exercise page. Disabled exercises no longer include a lock icon, and numbers are no longer present on open exercises.
