Learning Missions let your child become a modern-day detective agent.
In the Case of the Mysterious Dinosaur the mythical golden dinosaur statue has broken into three pieces and has gone missing! With fellow agents Wally, Zeg, and Deema, your child will travel back to the time of dinosaurs and use their syllable skills to find the pieces and put the statue back together.
Here’s what your child will learn:
Why are Syllables Important?
Identifying syllables is an important literacy skill. Completing this challenge helps strengthen your child’s ability to recognize and count out the number of syllables in a word. This helps to prepare them for reading.
Strengthen Your Child’s Syllable Skills
Practice at home by singing a song and clapping out syllables — try singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. You can even point to different objects in the room and have your child identify and count the syllables in the word. Make it an exciting challenge by seeing who can find an object with the most syllables.
More on Learning Missions:
With a quick swipe of a finger, your child activates the file to hear Interface share the details of their next assignment. They’ll team up with other awesome agents including favorite friends from Paw Patrol, Blue’s Clues & You, Bubble Guppies, Blaze and the Monster Machines, and more! After successfully tackling an assignment, agents earn a special reward. With rewards, your child extends the fun with open play, to create and share back the adventure with you.
Missions immerse children in playful learning by creating an engaging, interactive experience that supports each child’s growth.
Developed by Noggin’s team of learning experts, every mission focuses on a specific math or literacy skill coupled with key concepts and vocabulary for children ages 3-5.
Adaptivity sets our Learning Missions apart.
Behind the scenes, missions are guided by adaptive technology that scaffolds children as they play. Activities are designed to meet children where they are. That means the level of difficulty adapts to a child’s skill level as they learn, grow, and progress. It’s not one-size-fits-all. This personalized learning experience ensures children receive both the practice and challenge they need to succeed.
