The swimming pool is filled with chocolate milk. How absurd!
This colorful educational App for Android has all 54 illustrated picture cards (plus audio of each card) from the Listening for Absurdities Fun Deck by Super Duper Publications. Select the cards you want students to see, and have them practice their listening, reasoning, and problem solving skills as they tell you what makes each card absurd. Prompts include statements such as “The mother hen took good care of her baby octopus” and “Becky cut the paper with a fork.”
This App is simple to use — each student looks at an illustration, and either reads the prompt or touches the screen to listen to the prompt. The student then gives a verbal response. After each answer, tap the green (correct) or red (incorrect) button to score the student’s verbal response. Move to the next card by sliding the card currently on the display screen to the side, and the next image appears. Move to the next player by sliding the bar at the top of the screen. When you finish, view the results, and email them to as many addresses as you like.
Listening for Absurdities Fun Deck App lets you:
- Select all 54 cards or just the ones you want students to see.
- Enter all your students’ names.
- Track correct and incorrect responses for unlimited players.
- Email your results at the end of each game.
