In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve been extremely MIA lately! In the past month, I’ve graduated, started a new job, got ANOTHER puppy, bought a house, went on a vacation to the Dominican Republic, and was in a wedding. I’m.exhausted. So please excuse the lack of posts and new, fun materials! I promise they are coming!
Today, I’m excited to share an app review of Let’s Use Language. It’s an app very similar to another one I’ve reviewed in the past, Let’s Be Social. I enjoyed that app (and use it often) so I knew right away I’d like this app as well.
This app targets: vocabulary, sequencing, categories, and opposites. You can also make your own books to target anything you’d like!
Below is an example story from the app. You can scroll down slightly but this is about the length of most! I really like how they are short and to the point.
Below are some example question from the vocabulary section:
Below is a question in the sequencing section from the same story:
Below are some example questions from the categories section:
I was slightly confused about this section. Overall, I wish there were more typical category type questions. Another book asked questions such as, “Do penguins fly?” Instead, I wish they had questions like, “A penguin is an animal. Name three other animals.”
Below is an example of an opposite question:
Each time the app provides you with instant feedback:
And then after each “module” or book, your students can see how many they got correct:
-Good length of stories
-The stories are relatable and easy to understand
-I love how the app is set up. Easy to use and not too many graphics/extra things.
-Targets topics I need more materials for!
-So far, the app seems to be getting great reviews from SLPs!
-Some of the questions are directly related to the section they are in. BUT they are all useful.
-Many of the questions asked are not directly answered in the reading passages.
-No data tracking, only the report at the end (if that matters to you).
At the time of this review (01/16/14) the app was $14.99 in the App Store! Definitely worth it! Check it out here.
