Animal similes can be used in composition or conversation as it can greatly enhance and bring out the ideas. In this app, we have carefully chosen 35 most useful and popular animal similes. Each animal similes not only come with explanations but also with useful examples of using them in day-to-day scenarios.
Animal similes are usually part and parcel of a student’s curriculum in school. Student learnt similes through textbooks but more than often, the outcome is not fascinating. In this app, we had carefully picked colorful and cute animals that coupled with exaggerated animations to bring out the true meaning of the animal similes. We hope that the exaggerated animations will do what boring text cannot achieve: To allow students to fully grasped and remembered the meaning of the simile. For example, as Big as an Elephant is illustrated with the animation that an elephant is being pumped up by a balloon pump until it becomes so big that it impresses deeply on the student of the idea of what it means to be As Big As an Elephant.
The app also has a quiz section to encourage deeper learning by allowing students to drag and drop animal tiles to answer questions in an interactive and creative way. The student will also be rewarded with beautiful animated animal stickers if he can pass the quiz with flying colors. Altogether, there are a total of 105 questions and 35 beautifully animated stickers to be collected and the student will be so motivated to go through the quiz himself so as to earn and collect all the stickers. We hope, in this way, the student can learn and yet have fun instead of browsing through text and becoming bored.
In addition, each word and each sentence used in the app also comes with accurate audio pronunciation so that the student can touch and hear and thus increase his vocabulary with the correct pronunciation.
We hope your child will find this app useful, meaningful and enjoy learning from it just as much as we had enjoyed creating it
