You know that good ol’ standby, “hangman”? It’s a great game but a totally worn out format. Erik X. Raj has re-vamped this classic to appeal to our articulation clients of now in his new app, “Secret Mission Articulation“. Here’s more about this newbie app…
This fun and animated screen welcomes you to this app. There are commonly misarticulated sounds ready for you in every position and blends! This app is a collection of 600 (no typo!) sound-specific words for articulation practice. And the huge bonus is… it is totally MOTIVATING (gasp)! This app has quickly become a favorite of my elementary artic students.
Simply choose a sound and then a position (or mixed which is awesome for carryover or multiple clients!)
Students are then shown this secret mission screen. You can choose to hear the hilarious Erik Raj tell you about your mission by choosing “Hear your secret mission” at the top of the screen. Or, you can be boring and just begin guessing letters. For added fun, and practice, we say an articulation word before guessing and they are only allowed to guess a letter that is in the word they just said. Otherwise, you can just play the plain ol’ method which is much like hangman.
As you guess, your letters are turned yellow and correct letters are added to the word strip below.
When you have finished the word, click “enter” to solve the secret mission.
