The exercise itself is also incredibly rich. First, the kid is asked (by a mouse!) to break words up into syllables. It's a great exercise. If the student needs help or asks for a hint, the game prompts him both by telling him how many syllables and by providing a specific hint for the segmenting of that type of word. For example:
Divide before the middle consonant when the vowel sound before it is short!
The only other place that I've ever seen such detailed help with phonics and syllables are in paid subscription programs
