AUSTIN, Texas, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at SXSWEdu, Genius Plaza, a social impact enterprise working to ignite the genius in every child, announced the launch of Sammie Seal, a free, bilingual game to help students learn parts of speech.
Set in a vibrant environment, players collect different parts of speech including nouns, adjectives, verbs, adjectives, and conjunctions. Building a strong foundation in English or Spanish language is fun with this new game. Primary grades 1 through 5 benefit from practicing and strengthening their language skills. Motivation is built into the game as they pick the correct answers. Players can gain an extra life and a power up, blasting through Sammie's world - avoiding the goblins, flying space cows, and jelly-cyclopes. Players who make it through the initial round of questions face off against various bosses: ShamHoo the Orca, Bowler Bear the Polar Bear, and McDuffin the Puffin in this linguistic adventure.
"Playing Sammie Seal fosters improvement in reading, writing, and comprehension," said Michelle Emirzian, Chief Academic Officer at Genius Plaza. "As the game goes on, the difficulty level grows, challenging students and increasing the range of play. Students learn as they play. It is a win-win for parents, teachers, and kids."
Benefits of Game-based Learning:
- enhances the learning experience
- learning comes from playing the game
- provides instant feedback so learners see what they know or what they should know
Non-readers or emergent readers can join the fun, too -- words are color-coded, so players can begin at any level and advance as they improve. The app is available for free at iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Marketplace: http://onelink.to/2j3aww
