Learn app German with Emma
Zoo theme is one of the 24 themes of the app Learn Languages with Emma. Through games, children playfully increase their vocabulary. The Test module provides parents, teachers, and counselors the ability to follow the child's level and keep track of their progress.
Practical tips for parents on the theme Zoo
Children can learn new words in the app by playing this theme. It is important that children also do other activities to start using those words in everyday situations. Some tips:
- Visit a zoo or farm and look for all the animals you've learned about!
- Go to a library and look for a book about the zoo. Find all the animals!
With this activity, the child is introduced to the new words for the first time. The ease of use makes this activity suitable for children 2 years and older. The words are presented in an attractive visual way. The app speaks the word shown after which the child repeats the word.
With this activity the spelling can also be taught to children able to read.
Zoo Memory game
Find all the pairs in the game! The words are pronounced when the cards are turned over. If two identical cards are found, a short exercise appears. The cards are shown in large format, the spelling is shown, and the child can repeat the pronunciation with the push of a button.
Many children and parents play Memory together. In addition to learning new words, it is also a fun joint use of time.
Zoo Puzzle game
In the puzzle game the children drag the pictures to the correct space. It is reminiscent of the old-fashioned wooden puzzle game with a modern twist.
If a picture has been dragged into the correct box, the corresponding word (with article) is pronounced. After 4 pictures have been placed, the child hears applause. The pictures are then highlighted one by one and the corresponding word is spoken again.
This game teaches children how to pronounce words and stimulates the development of hand-eye-coordination.
