Nanette Cote of Speech2Me writes another wonderful review, this time about our award winning Preposition app, PrepositionBuilder. Her blog, The Next Chapter in my Speech World, was voted one of the top speech pathology sites of 2012. The award is well deserved, she does a great job with all of her reviews. Best yet, she is doing raffle for a free copy of PrepositionBuilder. Visit her blog to enter!
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 (in, on, under 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 shark jumped THROUGH the boat), 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.
