If you’re like me, your students love iPad apps, but you are challenged with using them in a way that elicits and expands language! I have created a solution with my Bamba Pizza Listening and Language App Companion! Purchase the Bamba Pizza app from the iTunes store for $1.99 (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bamba-pizza/id529035121). With the app, use this companion pack for four activities, one pre-game and three post-game to support listening and language growth!
1. Activity 1 targets following directions and auditory memory. Students are challenged to follow the directions of a peer or teacher to make a pizza.
2. Activity 2 targets sequencing and retelling. Place 8 cards in order and retell the sequence of the game.
3. Activity 3 targets comprehension questions. Listen to or read 12 post-game questions with picture answer choices.
4. Activity 4 targets vocabulary and expressive language as the student sorts pizza toppings onto a likes and dislikes mat and explains what he/she likes on pizza.
Have fun with the iPad and target listening and language goals at the same time!
