What you should know:
Red, yellow and orange leaves swirling in the wind, apples hanging low on trees, golden cornstalks … autumn is full of picturesque beauty. Fall in love with this grammar-focused app, full of tasks that tackle parts of speech and stunning autumn photography.
Little learners must read sentences that have one word highlighted, and choose which part of speech the highlighted word represents: noun, verb, pronoun, adjective, adverb, article, conjunction or preposition. Incorrect answers yield a honking noise and are highlighted in red, while correct answers trigger beautiful chimes that parallel the app’s serene, scenic photography, along with a green glow. This is a solid, straightforward way of drilling grammar that’s aligned to the Common Core Standards, but options are limited and there’s no real gameplay to speak of. Questions are divided into separate levels; however, there’s not much advancement in terms of difficulty—either kids get it, or they don’t.
For fifth graders struggling with parts of speech, this app can be extremely helpful—but if you’re looking for an educational app that’ll excite wordsmiths and reluctant learners alike, this isn’t the app. Gameplay falls short, and interest will dwindle quickly.
