Exercise Overview Task

Exercise Overview Task Whalien Match presents a pod of shipwrecked aliens (or Whaliens) with 4, 8, or 16 identical objects organized on the screen in a grid pattern. Students use their listening and memory skills as they click objects, listen to each object’s syllable/word, and then match them together to clear the screen using the fewest number of clicks and within the maximum number of clicks allowed. 1. Click an object to hear the syllable/word associated with that object. 2. Click another object to try to find the object with the matching syllable/word. If it plays the same syllable/word as the first object, you have found a match. 3. Click the first object again to confirm the match. If it is a match, the objects are removed. If it is not a match, the objects remain on the screen. First, click a Whalien and listen to the sound. Then click another Whalien and listen to the sound. When you find a match, click again on the object that first played the sound you heard. Look at the counter. Each time you click an object, the number goes down by one. To advance in Whalien Match, you must make all of the matches before the counter goes down to zero. “pack” “big” “big” 86 Whalien Match Teacher Manual

Exercise Overview Content Progression As students work through the exercise, it changes in a few ways: • it begins with speech sounds that have been digitally altered; as students progress through the exercise it decreases the processing level, and eventually presents the the syllables/words using natural speech • the syllables/words to match become more similar • the screen pattern increases in size: 4, 8, and 16 objects Introductory Set CVC Words pack big tug dip Introductory Level Students begin by working through an introductory level that provides instructions, modeling, and supports (audio feedback and/or visual cues). It uses speech processing level 1, with a subset of highly differentiated words from the standard levels, and all three screen patterns. This level helps students learn the task and determine an effective strategy for making matches. gap pit cut tick Standard Levels Syllables/words differ only by initial and/or final consonants. All four sets or syllables/words are repeated in all 5 speech processing levels and in increasingly larger screen sizes.
