Veggie Village: Letter Sounds

This game will help students gain confidence in matching sounds with their letter representations. In this mission, students will join Unicorn Man in planting a community garden. They will listen to the sound and select the matching letter or letters to turn on the water hose.

Cotton Candy Breakdown: Phonemic Awareness

This game helps students to develop phonemic awareness skills by listening to words segmented into phonemes (/b/ /a/ /t/) and matching the segmented sounds with the corresponding word.

They will hear a word broken into its segmented sounds and try to find the hidden picture that matches the sounds to clean up the cotton candy mess.

The Dictionary Dig: Vocabulary

This game will help students develop knowledge of Tier II vocabulary words by being taught new words and then matching the new vocabulary words to appropriate pictorial representations of the words. In this mission, students will join Octavia the Octopus in rescuing Unicorn Man from the center of the Earth. They will hear a word and its definition and then match it to the correct picture to help power Octavia’s rescue vehicle and save Unicorn Man!
