Description

The basic idea of Same Meaning Magic is to use touch-and-drag mechanics to engage children in a learning process regarding synonyms. All components of the game are in-house and organic.

This game is made possible with an Enhancing Education Through Technology competitive grant from the Virginia Department of Education.

The Virginia Standards of Learning targeted are:


2.6 The student will use language structure to expand vocabulary when reading.

a)Use knowledge of prefixes and suffixes.

b)Use knowledge of contractions and singular possessives.

c)Use knowledge of simple abbreviations.

d)Use knowledge of antonyms and synonyms.

4.3 The student will read fiction and nonfiction with fluency and accuracy. Use knowledge of word origins, synonyms, antonyms, and homonyms; and multiple meanings of words.

The targeted grade levels are grades 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. The game incorporates words and sentence structure to the particular grade level, based upon excerpts from grade-appropriate reading materials.

New River Community College is a two-year state institution of higher learning located in Virginia’s New River Valley. This game is made possible with an Enhancing Education Through Technology competitive grant from the Virginia Department of Education.

I am a middle school SLP, we are using this to work on synonyms. Many of my kiddos need to do it without the timer, but some like to use the timer as it seems "more like a video game." I am hoping you will add more words by continuing to add on to the grade levels to increase the difficulty. I would love to see you do opposites, etc. My kids that are using this on the iPad and an iPod see it as a favorite! Love to know when you have more apps like this one.

The untimed version is great for my speech therapy students.
They love the games, but needed more time to process.
Also love opposite ocean & same sound!
