What can I say. Once again, Jessica Chase of Consonantly Speaking has written an incredible review. This time she takes on our newest app verb tense app, TenseBuilder. Not only does she say a lot of nice things, but she goes into an INCREDIBLE amount of detail about how the app works and how she uses it in therapy. I cannot recommend her reviews enough. You should definitely check out her website.
TenseBuilder 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.
