Check out our new free Fun with Who, What & Where Lite app! Perfect for families and at-home practice to work on comprehending and answer basic WH questions.
Fun with Who, What & Where Lite is from Hamaguchi Apps, created by Patti Hamaguchi, a licensed speech-language pathologist. In this app, children can practice answering basic who, what and where questions through 5 unique activities. It is the exact same app as "Fun with Who, What & Where" (our full version) but with less content and only 2 individual users--no group play. It is designed for parent/home practice of these skills. We suggest asking your child's speech pathologist or teacher which settings to use during practice if you are not sure.
During play, the user to select the number of choices to be shown. Many of the activities allow the presentation rate of the question to be slowed down if needed so the child can have time to process and hear the key words. Data/score is kept (or not, if preferred).
Activity 1 is "Who vs. What". It shows a picture and asks a child a "Who" or "What" question about it. For example, "Who is on the bed?" or "What is on the bed?" The child is shown 2-4 choices and selects the correct answer. There are 5 pictures for a total of 10 questions for Activity 1.
Activity 2 is "WH Questions About Occupations". A who, what, or where question is heard, depending on what the user has selected in the settings. The child selects the picture that corresponds to the correct answer. For example, "Who puts out fires?" After all of the related questions are answered, a short animation clip is shown that features the occupation. There are 6 occupations altogether for Activity 2: firefighter, farmer, artist, dentist, lifeguard, and chef.
Activity 3 is "WH Questions About Pictures". It shows a picture and the child is asked a question about it, such as "Who is dancing?" or "Where is the boy?" and the child selects the correct answer. Activity 3 has an easier 3A set of questions (one person, one action) and more challenging 3B option (two people/two actions). After all of the related questions are answered, an animation clip related to the picture is shown. There are 6 pictures for 3A, and 6 pictures for 3B for a total of 12 pictures for Activity 3.
Activity 4 is "WH Questions About Sentences". It asks the user to listen to a very short story and answer questions about it. 4A features stories about one person and one action. The user can also select the syntax for the prompt from the 3 structures: simple sentences, "who" clauses, and "while" clauses. Activity 4B is more challenging and incorporates 2 people and 2 objects into the story, with between 5-8 choices for answers that are scrolled through. There are 6 stories in 4A, and 6 stories in 4B, for a total of 12 stories altogether in Activity 4.
Activity 5 is "Answering WH Questions About Animations". The user uploads a face photo, adjusts it, and then selects the skin tone, pronoun, and animations desired. Now the face is on the animations and can do all sorts of fun things. There are 8 animations: surfing on a wave, jumping on a trampoline, riding a bike, whistling, blowing bubbles, skiing, riding a horse, and driving a train.
Text can be turned on/off. Auto Advance keeps track of the user's skill within individual activities and individual question types. As the user becomes more successful in answering specific questions (such as who, what, or where) the difficulty level increases slightly by adding choices or eventually increasing the presentation rate. Conversely, the program will make the questions easier by showing fewer choices or slowing down the questions if the child is struggling.
