Quick and to the point
Following are some great iPad apps you may want to check. I'm including the app description and app graphic which includeds a link to the app. These are "pay-for" apps which is why I'm not recording what they look like when you use them (I'd go broke if I purchased every app I like.)
As always, the app links are available on the Tech Grid in the iPad Apps Preview tile. (Always look in the bottom right corner of the grids. If you see an arrow pointing to the right, that means there are more pages of similar content to connect to.)
Students learn when it is appropriate to introduce themselves, ask questions, make observations and change the subject of the conversation. They will also learn how to recognize sarcasm and how to respond when someone is bullying them or someone around them.
The student will be asked to initiate conversation, respond to conversations initiated by others or participate in group conversations. Students will be guided through conversations and allowed to record and save their conversations for later playback and study. Conversations are grouped into eight themes. The themes are school, relationship, sports, entertainment, bullying, sarcasm, clothes, and summer.
Being able to converse with peers is the cornerstone of developing relationships, and ConversationBuilderTeen™ promotes development of this skill in a fun and engaging way.
Story Builder offers a rich and fun environment for improving the ability to create a narrative.
Language Builder offers a rich and fun environment for improving the ability to create grammatically correct sentences.
During play, the student is presented an image and must drag a preposition to complete a sentence about the image. If the student chooses the wrong answer, the image and sentence change to show the student the proper use of the preposition they chose and how it changes the image. Once a student completes a module, they unlock a short animation that is part of a larger story. They must complete all the modules to see the entire story.
PrepositionBuilder™ offers a rich and fun way for all students to learn proper preposition use.
Students will learn how to sequence events and how to differentiate between events that will happen, events that are happening now and events that have already happened. Students will also identify correct written verb forms and drag them to complete sentences.
Students have the opportunity to record their sentences in their own voice to improve their receptive and expressive language skills and promote carryover of these target verb forms to their conversational speech.
Tense Builder offers a unique environment for improving a student's ability to understand tenses and use verb forms properly.
Students will learn how to recognize the parts of sentences such as nouns, verbs, and prepositions, improve their understanding of how combinations of these parts create basic sentence structure. Students have the opportunity to record their sentences in their own voice to improve their receptive and expressive language skills.
