Martha Speaks Word Spinner

Martha Speaks Word Spinner

       iOS iPad

Gather the family for the ultimate party game – with a distinctly Martha twist! Up to four players can join in the fun, with six interactive mini-games that both kids and parents can enjoy together. Players select their game piece from their favorite dog characters from the Martha Speaks television series and then the adventure begins. Along the way to the finish, players will encounter more than 100 vocabulary words like colorful, scientist, and nutritious while building their storytelling and oral vocabulary skills.

BUCKET BALL
In this arcade-style game, players catapult balls into moving buckets. The buckets are illustrated with key vocabulary words and players need to land their balls into the right buckets before time runs out (example words: precipitation, instruments, athletics).

NAME 5 THINGS
Martha asks players to name five things that are part of a certain category (examples: creatures, flavors of ice cream, things that make you ecstatic). They get to pop balloons as they speak each answer.

STORY SOUNDS
In this game, players are asked to tell a story that incorporates a bunch of silly sound effects. Players are prompted with a setting for their story (examples: in the park, at the beach, in a castle) that will give them a foundation to build on.

STUFF SORT
Help Martha sort through a humongous pile of stuff! Players slide cards illustrated with key vocabulary words into a box before time runs out (example words: vehicle, summer, construction).

WHO AM I?
It’s show time! In this game, players act out occupations depicted with an illustration (example words: nurse, carpenter, singer). The other players have to guess who they are!

WORD CONNECTOR
In this game, players match pictures sitting at the end of stretchy ropes. Each picture is illustrated with a key vocabulary word (example words: artwork, money, beverage).

So what are you waiting for – first player to the doghouse wins!


ABOUT MARTHA SPEAKS
Martha Speaks Word Spinner features characters from the PBS KIDS animated TV series Martha Speaks. Aimed at viewers between the ages of four and seven, the series’ educational goal is to teach kids new words. Based on the children's book series by Susan Meddaugh and published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the series stars Martha, a beloved family dog. She is accidentally fed alphabet soup — this gives her the power of speech and the chance to speak her mind to anyone that will listen. Visit the series website at http://pbskids.org/martha/
