How I Use It
This app would be good to use if you were working on basic sentence structure and to help students work on their word skills. I can see it being helpful for younger students because it offers both the visual and audio aspect. It is a great tool for ELL kids because it shows the word you are looking for and you just need to match it up.
My Take
Overall I don't recommend this app. I don't see the students wanting to use it more than once. It's very basic and doesn't offer the students a chance to create their own sentences. It does help them work on sentence structure and vocabulary but after awhile that concept gets old. It's nice that they have both the audio and visual aspect but I don't see the students begging to play this.
