Vocabulary Workbook: Fill-in-the-Blanks
For Rank Beginning Readers! 

"Invisible Ink"

Play Onwards Vol. 1 with 226 pages and Play Onwards Vol. 2 with 198 pages together cover virtually every monosyllabic word in the English language.


Each sentence, including the missing word, written in "invisible ink," is heard when clicked on.


There's a corresponding blank space for each missing letter, making the exercises easy for beginners with parental help.


So that the exercises never become too easy thus boring, youngsters are required to print plurals of nouns as well as various forms of verbs.
