there's free stuff in the MouseTrial software too!
Don't forget that you get lots of free goes in the MouseTrial software itself. Please don't be shy about using up all of your free goes, - that's what they're there for! Each individual game (or "submodule") has its own quota of free goes, so don't give up just because you've run out of goes on the first game you try!
Twelve workcards of varying levels of diffculty for doing "draw on the dotted line" type exercises. There's also a page of suggested teaching techniques including our crafty "silicone sealant" method of encouraging independent use of the pen.
Does your child deserve a medal? Of course he does!! Print out these sheets onto metallic peel-and-stick inkjet paper and then cut out the medals. They make a great rewards. The medals are overprinted with yellow to give a very nice "gold" effect on the shiny paper.
Ok, maybe they're not so angelic? .. but perhaps they still deserve a silver medal? These are exactly the same as the gold ones but without the yellow overprint. For a whacky alternative you can print these on peel-and-stick "glow in the dark" paper (a bit hard to find, but worth the effort) ...spooky! Or you can even use them on fluorescent coloured paper. ...psychedelic man!
This Zoetrope (strictly a "Phenakistoscope") is a mechanical version of the much loved "mouse bouncing in the underpants" animation from the Clothes and Body software module. It's just for fun really, although you could use the "cutting out" activity as scissor skills exercise.
