Grade: 2nd - 5th
Cost: 0.99 $
Platform: (iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad)
I have picked this app because I think that it is very helpful to children in 2nd to 5th grade. If you have a small child in you house and they are having a hard time with grammar you should get this app. It helps you find the verbs, subjects, and more in a sentence. This is also a very useful app for teachers to use with small children.
The way this app works is that it gives you a a sentence on the screen and then under it tells you what to click. For example, in these picture it tells you to click the subject. If you get it right, the word turns blue. If you get it wrong, it turns red and tell you what to click again. After you get it right, it tells you to go to the next one.
Then the app tells you to click another part of speech. For example, it would tell you to touch the verb. If you are right, then the word turns blue just the same as the example above. If you get it wrong, it turns red. After you find the right word, it takes you to the next word.
After you finish all the words and you get them all right, you get a check and then it take you to the next sentence and you do the same thing as the last one. It keeps going until you feel you know rammar.
The cost of this app is 0.99 cents. For an app like this, it is a very reasonable price. This is not very expensive, so if you want something cheap and fun for little children. This is the perfect app for you.
Cons: The problems with this app is it tends to repeat sentences that you have already seen. Also, it is not very hard. The sentence are aimed for younger people and do not get very hard.
Pro: The good things about this app is that it is very easy to use. It is also very self explanatory. If you just get this app and have never played it you will see that it is not hard to start. You can pick it up and don’t need to read very much to know how to play.
If you buy this app, you will be very happy with the results. This is like a grammar lesson in an app. It is easy to use if you are not familiar with use of an Ipod or other apple products. Once again this is perfected for small kids and kid who are having trouble with grammar.
