Captain Leftover

An Adventure in Voice-Over

Players create a voice-over recording for a short, humorous cartoon. The main character is a mischievous dog.

First, the players watch the cartoon with the voice provided by a professional voice actor. Then, players read the script and insert their voice recording into the cartoon. After the cartoon is produced, new drawing activities are unlocked.

Grades 2-4 may enjoy this game most. Reading level is Grade 3. The humorous cartoon may be enjoyed by many ages.

Players strive to produce a fluent, expressive reading of the script. The goal is to bring the character to life. Our humorous cartoons encourage laughter. The game provides players with a reading role-model, an opportunity to rehearse a short script, and a chance to watch their own cartoon.

The drawing activities are a forum for visualizing, exploring background knowledge, making connections between life and the text, and making inferences about the cartoon.

Hollywood GrooveTM voice-over adventures provide learning and practice in reading fluency. Our voice-over apps follow the guidelines provided by the National Reading Panel for reading fluency improvement.
