Carrie Manchester is a school based SLP in New Bedford, MA. She writes a blog called Carrie’s Speech Corner, where she reviews apps, offer tips and shares experiences. Her blog was voted one of the best speech language blogs on the net, and it is well deserved. The think I like best about her reviews is the sheer number of images she includes with them. She has 12 images as part of her review. It really helps to understand how the app works when you can see screen shots of everything she is talking about.
Carrie has written a very comprehensive review of our Tensebuilder verb tense app. On top of all the images, she has a section at the end where she summarizes all of the things she likes along with a very suggestions for improvement. On top of that, she is having a raffle for a free promo code for TenseBuilder, so visit her blog now and register!!
TenseBuilder is the newest addition to our “Builder” series of apps. It employs movie quality animations to teach tense. We take the kids through an entire timeline, which gives the students a much deeper understanding of Tense markers and why they are important. Because we are using video, we are able to tackle the more difficult verbs (do, go, come), that don’t have as concrete an action associated with them as other verbs (run, jump, walk). These verbs can be difficult for many children to fully comprehend, but they become clear with the animations. Combine that with a lot of humor in the animations themselves, and you have an app that kids want to continue playing and teaches tense in a way not possible with flash cards or worksheets.
