Do you remember that lovely 1980’s game called Simon? Red – Green – Green – Blue – Yellow – etc.! Well, Erik Raj has combined this concept with Articulation practice and whamo! Listen Close is here! Here’s how it goes down…
Simply choose a sound and then a position (or mixed which is an awesome addition!)
There will be a countdown and then you will see the mouth of a child open. They will say a word and you will repeat the sequence. Each time, a new word is added to the sequence and the student must remember the string of kids and words. I have my students repeat the word after they tap the child.
When you make a mistake, you are shown your score and the High Score. We typically get 5-7 “rounds” in which is at least 15-28 reps per game. It’s highly engaging and very motivating for the students. This is also a great app to recommend to parents who may want to do to practice at home. It’s very motivating and the whole family can participate and the student can easily complete the task on their own.
- Insanely motivating.
- Great for older students who have “done it all”.
- Inexpensive – $4.99!
- 600 sound-specific words.
- “Mixed” words option is great.
- Perfect for use/extra practice at home.
