Product information

"For those of you not teaching in the 80s, Podd was a blob who would try to do what a child typed into the computer. It was simple but effective, and Scally has taken this concept and flown with it. World of Verbs and Actions is a bulging package with CD-ROM, handbook, cross-curricular links, storybook, the music for Scallys catchy song, plus even flash cards. The end result is a beautiful program which children enjoy and which can be configured to easily meet their needs." TES Online


Develop early Literacy and ICT skills by spelling verbs to see if Scally can do them. In Verbs & Actions, our engaging alien Scally will do just about anything a child could possibly want, so long as he or she can click on, type, or copy a verb.

The program can be used at five different levels, from simply watching Scally perform an action, through causing him (her for those who have read the story included with the pack) to act out the verb, to spotting missing letters in verbs or typing a sequence of verbs to make a story (e.g. sleep, wash, dry, fetch, play). With more than 400 verbs to discover, including synonyms, in both past and present tenses, built in help, instant feedback and a friendly interface, children are instantly keen to check their understanding.

The pack fits a variety of individual, group or class situations, from giving instructions using verbs, through decision-making and ICT skills, plus working away from the computer.

The five activities are easily linked to the National Curriculum:
  • Watch and Say (watch Scally act out verbs)
  • Click and Watch (click on a verb and watch Scally do it)
  • Watch and Click (watch an action, then click on the verb)
  • Watch and Write (watch an action, then type the verb)
  • Write and Watch (type verbs Scally knows, or make a sequence)

  • Handbook
  • Classroom book
  • 48 page illustrated storybook Scally's Adventure on Earth
  • Music and song sheets
  • 20 illustrated Word Cards
  • Intellikeys Overlay
  • Optional onscreen keyboard
