Is that Silly?
Is That Silly is a fun way to teach children of various ages to pay attention to detail and expand their language skills. Designed with over 120 pictures created specifically to attract children’s attention, Is That Silly helps develop both receptive and expressive language as well as encouraging visual and auditory attention. The high-quality images in Is that Silly come in pairs, one silly and one “not silly” and are presented randomly. Each non-silly picture represents an every-day or true-life situation. The matching picture will vary by a silly change in wording.
How to play
With each turn, a narrator describes what is happening in the picture (e.g., “He is wearing his shoes on his hands.”). The student then selects the “silly” or “not silly” image. If the correct image is tapped, the child is congratulated. If the “silly” image is tapped correctly, the app automatically moves forward to the expressive feature and the child is asked what makes the picture silly. The adult working with the child then makes the judgment on if the child’s answer was “correct,” “almost correct,” or “not correct.” The correct/incorrect responses are marked by tapping on one of three flowers placed discretely in each scene. A “next” arrow is present on every page so the scene can be skipped if necessary. A tally of correct responses is tucked discretely in the corner of each scene.
