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 Tizzy Zoo Vet Listening and Language App Companion! Purchase the Tizzy Zoo Veterinarian app from the iTunes store for $2.99 (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tizzy-zoo-veterinarian/id687940293?mt=8). With the app, use this companion pack for four activities to support listening and language growth!
1. Activity 1 targets describing using attributes. After the game, use the slider to describe the avatar/character in the game.
2. Activity 2 targets retelling. Using a retelling mat, place the animal card and problem card from your game experience.
3. Activity 3 targets memory by sorting animals by continent. Make it as easy or difficult as you need by increasing the field.
4. Activity 4 targets vocabulary, expressive, and receptive language by answering questions related to the app.
Have fun with the iPad and target listening and language goals at the same time!
