Vocabulary is a very important aspect of learning to read. it is very essential to create an association of the words that they use in the daily life and to read those words in print. This association should be shown in the most direct way of showing the object and their spelling in the form of flash cards. Traditionally most of the special educators have actually worked with this concept teaching by presenting the real object and teaching them the names.This app teaches them the names of the vegetables and shows them the picture of the vegetable. Any concept needs to be taught in a sequential way and in a small steps, so that they understand it quite well and use it in their everyday living.Just reading a spelling is a visual skill, but learning them involves all the senses. These children need to see, hear and touch to truly absorb and understand the concept of the word. Hence the spelling activities should be supported with multisensory activities to reinforce the concepts being taught. When the children are taught the how to read the name of the vegetables, they learn the association of the words with the vegetable. And they also eventually learn that the characters on the page are actually words that have meaning and are related to spoken language.In this app the concept of learning the names of the vegetables is given in different combinations.
