This is a nice review of our TenseBuilder Verb Tense App. It was written by Stephanie Soon of iHeartThisApp.com. iHeartThisApp is an app review site that covers both educational and entertainment apps. Stephanie goes into a lot of detail about how the app works. Best of all, under the section labeled “suggested improvements”, she didn’t have any!!
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 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 not only do you have an app that kids want to play, but also an app that teaches tense in a way not possible with flash cards or worksheets.
