Get ready to have fun learning verbs with The Great Action Adventure interactive CD-Rom. Great for the home or classroom learners young as two can easily play and watch action videos by themselves and learn the associated nouns or signs. Once students master common nouns and verbs, they can move on to an advanced level and learn past, present and future verb tenses.
The Great Action Adventure allows students to learn in several different modes. We understand that some students learn through play, and others learn better in a highly-structured setting. To accommodate the needs of each learner this program features two operating options:a play area and a structured teaching area. Both areas are fully-customizable for each student. Teachers have the ability to choose which verbs to are taught, the order they are introduced, and the level of reinforcement and prompting.
Your students will learn receptive noun and verb matching, sign language, word matching and verb tenses.
The Great Action Adventure CDROM also features separate teacher and student areas. From the teacher area, you set up the program for individual students and track progress. From the student area, students can choose to play or do a lesson. Students cannot access the teacher area since it is password protected.Operating Requirements:
- Pentium 166 PC or higher running
- Windows 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7
- Macintosh OS X version 10.2 or higher
- A CD-Rom drive
In the receptive verbs lesson, students are given a spoken command such as "find stand", "touch stand", or "where is stand?" Initially there will only be one picture to choose from, so the student should be able to answer correctly. After several successes, the number of choices will increase to two. If the student begins to have difficulty, the program will prompt the correct answer or reduce the number of choices. The number of pictures on the screen will increase up to a number which you specify (for example, 4)
You have complete control over what command is given, how the student is prompted, how quickly pictures are increased and which verbs are taught. You can also select how the student is reinforced and how often.
The receptive nouns lesson is set up like the receptive verbs program. The nouns that are taught are all related to verbs. For example, foods that you eat or things that you blow. As with the verbs program, you can select the items that you would like to teach and the order in which they are taught.
Verb Sight Words
In the verb sight words lesson, students drag the written word to the corresponding picture. As with the other lessons, initially there is only one choice on the screen. Choices increase as the student is successful.
Noun Sight Words
The noun sight word lesson is just like the verb sight word lesson. Students drag the written word on top of the correct picture.
The verb tenses program teaches present, past and future tenses. First a video will play either partially, half way through, or all of the way. The computer will then ask, "What is he doing?", "What is he going to do?", or "What did he do?" Students must complete the sentence by dragging the correct word to the blank spot. As with all other lessons, you can select how often students are prompted and rewarded, and how quickly new verbs are introduced.
The sign language lesson plays a video of a noun or verb sign. The student must then click on the corresponding picture. As with all other lessons, you can select which signs are taught, and how quickly they are introduced.
