Irregular Spelling


Irregular Spelling

In this lesson, students will watch a short presentation where an Actor says a rhyme and gives an example of three different irregularly spelled words. Next, students will use the given code blocks in the DIY module to create a project about identifying irregularly spelled words. In the DIY module, students will make apple Actors appear and disappear and will use “say” blocks to type a rule about spelling or grammar. The DIY module also includes a bonus activity where students can use a loop to repeatedly turn the apple Actors to the right.
After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions that test their knowledge on identifying the correct spelling of irregularly spelled words. Words mentioned in the quiz include "weird," "science," and "foreign." By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., messaging, loops, events, direction and turning) while reinforcing the correct spelling of irregularly spelled wods. If students finish early, encourage them to experiment with the bonus activity (titled “Spinning Apples”) in the DIY module. How fast can they spin the apple Actors? What happens when they change the number inside the “turn” block?

This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!

Daughter's favorite

Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.

Such a great app!

This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
