Practice Level A student will read an analogy and will be asked to fill in the missing word from 3 answer choices. Analogies are presented in both the missing word format and the colon format so that students become accustomed to seeing both presentations. An incorrect response allows the student to read the analgoy again and select a different answer.

Single Player The student plays a bingo-like game against the computer. Answering the analogy question correctly allows the student to place a marker on the game card. 5 markers in a pattern wins the game.

Multi Player The student plays a bingo-like game against other students. The first student to fill his/her game card with 5 markers in a pattern wins the game.
