K9.5: The Tail-Wag Tour
K9.5: The Tail-Wag Tour is the fourth game in the K9.5 series of educational video games produced for the PlayStation by Lightspan. This game is designed to improve reading / language arts skill. The player has four learning objectives:
- Identify parts of speech
- Identify the predicate and the subject of a sentence
- Identify direct objects, indirect objects, and prepositional phrases
- Identify complete sentences, sentence fragments, and run-on sentences
The player can help five characters, Ella, Gershwyn, Maxine, Riff, and Theo get ready for a concert by programming lights, cameras, and the backdrop projector while learning about parts of speech and grammar. Dogs are the theme of this title.
As with all Lightspan games, this title was not released to retail to the general public. Instead, it was only available to schools for educational purposes.
