This game focuses on weather vocabulary within the four skills sections of the application. There is talking about the weather vocabulary practice section and a weather vocabulary spelling section. The straight vocabulary learning games help students to learn the words and increase their lexicon. There are some question and answer games for students to practice using the new vocabulary in English conversation which should not only increase speaking competence but also increase vocabulary retention. The question and answer activities are associated with the ESL Curriculum for Kids - Unit 7.
The questions and answers for this game are as follows.
A: How's the weather today?
B: It's hot out.
A: Is it raining?
B: Yes, it is./No, it's not.
This weather game presents vocabulary in a very natural way. Students will see sentences like "It's hot out." or "It's cold outside." instead of simply "It's hot." or "It's cold." However, when the students have to write their own answers, the games will take just the plain and simple answers, like "It's windy."
All of the continuous items are presented in the present continuous. "It's raining.", However, the writing sections will accept "It is rainy." if that's what the students have been taught.
The spelling section will accept a few forms of the word where applicable - "snowing", "snowy", but not "snow" - the best and surest answers can be found in the "learning" section of the application.
