Content Update: December 2021
Happy New Year from the Content and Film departments at Gemiini! We’ve uploaded several new projects this month and we hope that you and your learner will be half as excited as we are for them!
Identifies An Object By An Adjective
In Identifies An Object By An Adjective, the adult asks the learner to find the object that is the given adjective. For example, “Find the one that is short”. These videos are a great way to see if your learner understands beginning descriptive words without having to speak.
You can find these clips in Spoken Language > Descriptive Words (Adjectives & Adverbs) > Describing Objects.
Taking Turns Adding To A Story
The Taking Turns Adding To A Story project has the adult begin a game with learners to add items to a list or story. For example, “I went to the grocery store and bought….bananas”. The learner then adds to that by saying, “I went to the grocery store and bought bananas and…cookies.”
These fun clips will help encourage your learner to participate in storytelling, while also working on the categorization of items.
You’ll find these videos in Early Communication Skills > Intraverbal > Other
Names Items By Two Different Names
Names Items By Two Different Names has the learner identify an item and then think of another name that it can be called. For example, “couch” and “sofa”.
These clips are great to help teach your learner that sometimes, there is more than one answer that is right when labeling an item.
You can find these new videos in Early Communication Skills > Labeling > What is That?
Select the Animal When Given Its Sound
Our new Select the Animal When Given Its Sound project has the adult ask the learner to choose from three choices the animal that makes the given sound. For example, “Which one says ‘Cock-A-Doodle-Doo’?”. Being able to identify items based upon their sound is a valuable skill for learners to acquire.
These great videos can be found in Early Communication Skills > Receptive Language Training > Discriminate and Select.
Using a Complete Sentence With An Adjective
In Using a Complete Sentence With An Adjective, the learner is asked to describe what they see in the picture. The learner will then model giving their answer in a complete sentence. For example, “Her hair is long.” Videos such as these that model using a complete sentence will help encourage your learner to expand their thoughts when communicating.
You’ll find these videos in Spoken Language > Descriptive Words (Adjectives & Adverbs) > Describing Objects.
Adding “s” To the End Of Words
Last, but definitely not least, our Adding “s” to the End of Words project uses fun animation to help show learners how to make a word plural. For example, “An Apple….Lots of Apples”. There is also the added teaching component of using an article (a and an) when giving an answer. Being able to identify plural items will expand your learner’s ability to communicate effectively.
These new videos can be found in Reading, Writing, & Academic > Grammar
