Show and Tell Friday - WORD SLAPPS

So, I've decided that Fridays are going to be Show and Tell days.  My Show and Tells are going to probably consist of books, songs, toys, apps, and probably a few random things I want to share.

Today I'm going to share one of my favorite apps that I used in my preschool class for my kiddos working on receptive language.  This is called Word SLapPs.

Here's how it works

  • There are 6 different levels, which means you can have an array of 1-6 pictures that the child will choose from.
  • You can either have the child read what they are supposed to find, or you can turn on the audio that tells them.
  • When the correct picture is chosen it has positive sounds/graphics.
  • It will tell you at the end how many were chosen correctly, and which words were missed.

And here's why I love this app.

  • You can make your own vocabulary lists.  I either use my ipad camera to take pictures, or get pictures off the web.  It's really easy
  • You can use your own audio
  • You can turn off the negative sound when the wrong picture is chosen (the negative sounds drive me crazy because usually they're more reinforcing for the kids than the positive sounds)
  • You can have it so there is only 1 picture to choose from for those kiddos that are just learning to follow directions to touch or point to...
  • It keeps data for you that you can copy at the end of each session
  • It's easy to use
  • The kids love it
