Each of the 20+ activities consist of a graded sequence of 20 to 40 simply presented multiple-choice questions. Correct answers result in a short animated sequence with music and spoken reinforcement while a fun ‘monkey story’ game on each CD adds to the motivation.
Full speech support and switch access options provide access to learning by almost all students and simple performance reporting allows you to record student progress. These activities were designed by a teacher and Maths ICT Coordinator with over 20 years experience in primary and special schools.
The activities are structured using a positive reinforcement strategy without the need for intrusive on-screen help. Should the activity content not quite fit your specific needs, you can modify them using ChooseIt! Maker 2.
ChooseIt! Maker 2 is very easy to use and allows you to change the text, the pictures, the speech or music in an activity. You can also use each of these CDs on their own.

"Wow - they are brilliant for all ages and abilities and we use them throughout our 3-19 age range. Set out in a clear chronological way, they are simple to use and my pupils love the multiple choice activities and music reward at the end. What more can I say? After all these years in the job these are a teacher’s dream!!!"
