This is a crazy good review of our PrepositionBuilder grammar app. I can’t think of another review that goes into so much detail about every aspect of the app. After reading this review you know everything there is to know about PrepositionBuilder. Best of all, she is having a raffle for a free copy!
It was written by Jenn Alcorn, a practicing SLP and founder of the Crazy Speech World blog. Her blog was named one of the best speech pathology blogs in 2012, and for good reason. She does a great job with her app reviews and other posts. There is an incredible amount to learn.
PrepositionBuilder uses visual imagery to foster a deep understanding of how prepositions can change the meaning of a sentence. We target 28 of the most common prepositions and group related prepositions together (toward-around-through for instance). The students are presented an image and are asked to drag the correct preposition to an incomplete sentence. Wrong answers trigger an image change, showing the student what the picture looks like with the preposition they DID choose. The student learns proper preposition use, regardless of whether they choose the correct answer. Since the wrong preposition sometimes makes for a pretty funny picture (The boys are making a sandcastle out of water), many students get the wrong answer on purpose, just so they can see the other images. The beauty of PrepositionBuilder is that it doesn’t matter, they learn just as much getting the wrong answer as getting the right one.
PrepositionBuilder is part of Mobile Education Store’s award winning “Builder Series” of education apps. Mobile Education store has won over 20 awards and was named developer of the year for both 2010 and 2011.
