Super Duper Core Curriculum – PreK-K Pro Review & Giveaway
Super Duper Core Curriculum – PreK – K Pro from Super Duper Publications Inc. This app was created a company well known to speech and language pathologists: Super Duper Publications Inc. Sharon and Thomas Webber founded Super Duper® Publications in 1986 with two products and two types of stickers. The Core Curriculum series currently has levels from PreK-k to third grade. This app offers four sets of 25 vocabulary words (math, science, social studies and language arts) that target the can be targeted separately or in any combination. The company also offers the social studies deck for free to try the app and decide whether or not to purchase the full app. This app has four games. In secret decoder the student reads or listens to the prompt and answers, chooses their answer and then slides the decoder over to check their answer. This activity is based off of their secret decoder series and is one of the kids favorite activities. The multiple choice game offers two ways to play with one word and three definitions or one definition and three words. The matching game has red cards and blue cards and the student needs to pick one of each to match up words to definitions. Then the student needs to choose match or do not match based upon the cards they chose. In the drag n match game students drag the vocabulary and definition cards together.
I love the game settings options in this version! You can choose: auto advance students and/or cards, auto read, require full read through, feedback for correct or incorrect answers, sound effects on or off, open ended answers (score yourself), and easy mode will leave all cards flipped over during play. he Drag n match game and matching game also offers the picture on or off for the word and or the definition. he data collection is great. he app keeps track of what vocabulary was answered correctly and incorrectly as well as the answers chosen and can be printed or shared with family through email.
The read through option works great on the secret decoder and the multiple choice games. I n the other two games students can choose their answers without listening to the choices and answers and move on without hearing the answers so they can finish the game while guessing and not hearing the correct choices. Would like to see the app read the correct choices before the student can move to the next match.
The Data Tracking section also is very helpful as it allows tracking for any number of students, making it perfect for schools as well as viewing how a student has progressed over time. This app can either be used in a traditional school based setting or at home with your child/ren to work on specific tasks related to speech therapy and can show a therapist as well as a parent progress over time.
The “Pro” version of this app is suited for educational settings and a “lite” version of the app with in-app purchases is available for schools or parents. Since the “Pro” version is currently 50% off I’d suggest getting that rather than having to purchase each set of cards separately.
