Actions with Splingo
Teach children vocabulary relating to action words
Actions with Splingo is the exciting language app from the Speech and Language Store – authors of the popular Splingo app series.
Designed by experienced Speech & Language Pathologists (SLPs), Actions with Splingo uses high-quality animations to teach children vocabulary relating to action words, otherwise known as verbs.
The amusing animations will not only captivate children’s attention but also provide much clearer demonstrations of the meaning of each action word than static images, thereby facilitating the learning process.
Action words are an important part of a child’s vocabulary as they are essential in most sentences, but can be tricky to teach using traditional image-based activities.
A tailored experience for every child
Actions with Splingo can be tailored to the child’s unique needs as individual action words can be selected and specifically targeted. The vocabulary is organised in a developmental hierarchy so that the level of difficulty can be matched to the child’s ability, helping them learn whilst being rewarded with success.
- Easy: blow, brush, clap, eat, drink and many more
- Medium: bite, carry, cut, read, swim and many more
- Hard: bake, chew, count, drop, hold and many more
The user can also select the number of instructions within each game and the child is rewarded for each correct answer with a full-screen animation complete with entertaining sound effects!
