In this lesson, students will watch an example of an Actor revealing the number of syllables in the word “examine,” then use code blocks to create a project that models how many syllables are in a word. Coding activities include programming the “speech” Actor to change costumes, using the “when actor clicked” block to send a message, and animating the Actor to move as it counts syllables. Students are provided the necessary visual assets (backgrounds, costumes, Actors) and code blocks in the DIY module.
After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions that test their knowledge on how to divide a given word into syllables. Words mentioned in the quiz include "apple," "water," "examine," "cat," "scientist," "basket," "continent," and "remember." By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., messaging, costume handling, animation) while reinforcing syllables in a variety of words.

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.
Great app!
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!
So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!

Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
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.
