How I Use It
I used Grammar Jammers Primary to review grammar concepts with my 2nd graders at the beginning of the year and later in the year for students who needed more review. The app provides a quick (about 2 minute) video lesson about 7 different concepts including sentences, nouns, and contractions. After the lesson there is a short quiz. It was a quick way for students to review parts of speech concepts. It was a little boring and too easy for advanced students but did engage students who were struggling. There is not a lot of content in the app so students complete the activities pretty quickly, but for free it works well.
My Take
I liked the fact that there's a dashboard with quiz scores for each of the sections. In the settings it's easy to reset before the next student plays. I ask students to take a screenshot of the dashboard when their turn is done so I can quickly see how they did. The app is very easy to navigate with clear buttons and not a lot of distraction. Students enjoy the songs for each concept.
