This interactive game develops language, discrimination, and reasoning skills in young learners. Clear, colorful images of everyday objects promote an understanding of functions and the relationships between items that children encounter on a daily basis. With built-in reinforcement and error correction, this game provides a solid foundation in building critical expressive and receptive language skills.
It starts off with the instructions written down and read aloud (it would be good if the word was highlighted as read) and also with pictures underneath, show exactly what to do.
The game is quite simple, you have to touch the image in the top centre and drag the object to one of the three images – What Goes Together? You do this 10 times and you get a result in percentage at the end. There are far more ‘matching’ activities then just 10.
If you get a match wrong a 2nd time, it highlights the correct image by making it larger - error less learning which is always a bonus for children.
What I like about this app is the simple instructions, clear ‘real’ pictures, lots of positive encouragement and the fact that the children can use it themselves independently very quickly
