Our first grade daughter has been working on sight words, reading, and spelling. She also loves mammals and this inspired us to build a new cross-curricular app which addresses this need for her.
In this app we put together a new feature to allow the student to explore the world and see over 30 of its mammals. The explore mode is appropriate for Elementary Level students.
Also included in iLiveSpelling Mammals are 100 sight words from Fry's first 100 and Dolche's Primary words combined, which is suitable for K to 2nd grade.
We decided to really test her understanding of the word within a sentence and also with a photograph. She has the option to play a recording of the sentence or the word which is of her mother. She then types in the word and receives immediate feedback. Over 100 combinations of sentences, words, photos, and videos are included. The tests are randomly generated from the pool of over 100 possible word/sentence/photo sets. The tests are automatically graded and can be emailed or blogged for record keeping.
The VGA adapter support works with the spelling sentences and photos which can be projected to an LCD Projector in a classroom.
Also like the other iLive apps the videos can be used as an incentive and set to appear after 1, 5, 10, 15, or 20 correct answers.
We also worked on making the Simple English Wikipedia Page kid safe to prevent drilling to sub-pages and getting to a search field. So the initial data is visible but the links are removed. A Youtube video is included under each wiki page where available... Watch the demo on our website for a preview.
