Are you looking for apps to help and support your kids with grammar?
At Fun Educational Apps we just discovered the latest educational apps from iHomeEducator:
iLiveGrammar Botany and iLiveGrammar Autumn
2 New Grammar Apps for kids - designed for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad - that combine grammar and Science.
How? iLiveGrammar are interactive multimedia apps - inspired by the math app iLiveMath Word Problem series - that support kids learning English grammar. iLiveGrammar series are highly educational apps that randomly display sentences with a word highlighted. Kids read the sentence and then need to answer what type of word is it. They have to know if it is a noun, verb, pronoun, adjective, adverb, conjunction, preposition or an article.
iLiveGrammar Botany presents sentences relating to botany, while iLiveGrammar Autumn uses sentences which describe earth science, animal behaviour, and other fun autumn topics. With iLiveGrammar apps, kids not only have the opportunity to review their grammar, they also have the opportunity to learn about botany and earth science via beautiful pictures and videos. Videos are great tools to enhance kids’ learning and can be set as a reward – Answer 5 or 10 questions right to get a chance to watch the video, a great incentive. The goal is to give kids a chance to develop an interest in these areas of the curriculum, not to cover all the subjects. If the children are interested in learning further, iLiveGrammar series offer great links to some educational websites.
iLiveGrammar offers 4 lessons:
- Lesson 1: Nouns and Verbs
- Lesson 2: Adjectives and Adverbs
- Lesson 3: Prepositions, Articles, Nouns, and Conjunctions
- Lesson 4: Review
These educational apps randomly generates the sentences and photographs using a combination of words appropriate to the theme so that each test is different.
iLiveGrammar is ideal for primary school and can be used at home for review or in the classroom.
Note for teachers: Using the Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter the teacher can control the app as well as display the sentence and photograph on an external projector. The Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter is supported by the iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod touch (4th generation). All iLiveGrammar apps ported to 4.0 will support this new adapter.
