User Manual

BloomingKids Daily Routines

This program uses a child's normal daily activities (from getting up in the morning to going to bed at night) to help the student to learn listening, identifying, and naming skills.

These sub-programs are:

Click on the program option to select it and click on the “Enter” button to open the program.
Help

Click on the “Help” button to view the help contents. The help file opens in a separate window.
About

Click on the “About” button to view the profile of this company.
Enter

After selecting a sub-program, click on the “Enter” button to open the program.
Exit

To close this “Daily Routines” program, click on the “Exit” button.
Note: In most of our matching and activity programs, the student must wait until the command voice has finished before he/she clicks on the object. For instance, the voice must finish “Match waking up” before the student clicks on the waking up picture. (If the student clicks on the waking up picture before the voice command is finished, nothing will happen.) Therefore the teacher/parent needs to instruct the student to wait for the voice command to finish.

Level 1

When this option is selected, one daily routine activity appears at the top of the screen. Two activity pictures are shown at the bottom of the screen to be matched with the one at the top of the screen. There is one correct choice and one distracter. You can choose a Daily Routine or Non-daily Routine distracter. “Mixed” gets disabled.

When this option is selected, three activity pictures are shown at the bottom of the screen to be matched with the one at the top of the screen. There is one correct choice and two distracters. You can choose Daily Routine, Non-daily Routine, or Mixed distracters.
Training
The Training mode is selected by default. This program uses daily routine pictures to train listening and matching skills.

Only under “Test” mode is “Report” enabled. After doing any number of test problems, you can click on “Done” to see the report. When you click on “Done” the settings screen appears. Now click on the “Report” button under “Test” to see test results. First the current test result will be shown with the date, starting time, end time, and level of the test. It also shows the percentage of correct answers. There are also buttons for showing test results in different forms. “Report” allows the teacher/parent to measure the student's progress. The following are available.
Detailed Report
This screen shows test results including the grade, object identified, distracters, and time taken to finish the test.

Distracter
Daily Routine
This option is selected by default. When this option is selected, the distracters are all daily routine activities. This option is disabled for Level 1 and available for Level 2 and Level 3.
Non-daily Routine
When this option is selected, the distracters are some items other than daily routine activities. This option is disabled for Level 1 and available for Level 2 and Level 3.

Mixed
This option is available only for Level 3. When this is selected, one distracter is a daily routine activity and the other distracter is a non-daily routine activity.

Command Text
This is checked by default. When checked, a short command text is visible at the bottom of the screen. If unchecked, the command text will not be visible.
User Defined

This feature allows the teacher/parent to customize the screen by selecting particular matching objects and distracters and choosing their locations on the screen.

When this box is checked, the next screen will be the “SELECTION” screen. This screen allows the teacher/parent to choose the matching object (Identifying Daily Routine Activity) and its location on the screen. It also allows the teacher/parent to choose the distracter/s.

There are no distracters for Level 1. Therefore the teacher/parent should select only the matching daily routine activity.

For Level 2 and Level 3, the teacher/parent has to select the matching activity, its location, and distracters from the User Defined “selection” screen before clicking the “Ok” button.

The picture-matching screen has a “Back” button. The student can return to the “User Defined” setting screen by clicking this button. Click the “Done” button to close the User Defined program.
