Brainy Skills Multiple Meanings game is designed to help children and young adults learn how and when to use words with the same spelling and different meanings depending on context. The interactive format creates a challenging yet fun atmosphere to learn how and when to apply words with multiple meanings with the same spelling.
This app was created, developed, and written by a certified Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) with the assistance of a former teacher, and many years of hands on experience in a variety of settings. Settings include daycares, schools, and preschools, with a large variety of both younger and older school age children who are both typically developing and special needs children. After seeing the difficulties and struggles with answering a variety of questions, the great need for a unique, motivating, fun and exciting way to help improve these skills was obvious. There is a need to combine learning with fun in order to improve and increase motivation when grasping concepts such as multiple meaning words. This app can also be used for practicing reading, and overall comprehension skills for middle and high school special needs students and those looking for remedial practice.
Adaptable as needed by parents, teachers, and therapists for a variety of skill levels, the sentences can be read aloud to the student if needed. Students can play on their own or with a caretaker, assistant, or therapist to guide them along and practice basic oral reading skills. First read sentences as they are written, then find the correct option from the multiple choice options, while working your way up the scoreboard for points. It’s that easy! Motivate your child to beat their score each time they play and get to the highest score. There are also Brainy Bonuses that at times are tricky to teach and review the core material. The bonuses differ in complexity, and offer an opportunity to earn more points.
