Content Update | New High Interest Videos!
Sing along with our new High Interest QuickStarts to teach verbs and imitation!
Gemiini's High Interest videos were designed to make our style of video modeling more engaging for individuals who don't like watching Gemiini. These videos blend our style of midshot, closeup, and generalization clips with stories and songs to make viewing time fun. This gentle introduction to our format helps students get used to watching Gemiini.
This week we're excited to announce the addition of four new High Interest QuickStarts:
High Interest | Happy and You Know It
High Interest | Ring Around the Rosie
High Interest | Row, Row, Row Your Boat (Stretch, Kick, Nod, Raise Hands)
High Interest | Row, Row, Row Your Boat (Tap, Hop, Point, Tickle, Walk)
In these videos, our actors sing along to the tune of popular children's songs and model actions to demonstrate the meaning of basic verbs. After each verse, a clip from our library in the traditional Gemiini format plays to model articulation and generalize the meaning of each word.
These new videos are well-suited for students working in Level 4 of the Language Pyramid. They are also a great supplement for students practicing imitation skills. Encourage participatation by singing along with the video and copying the actions on the screen. Prompt students to follow along, and give lots of praise when they participate or demonstrate the desired outcome!
