Remember the ACTs and SATs? (Or even the GRE) One one of the things I had the most trouble with were the abstract questions. This app really isn’t on that level of question, but it does help get conversations started and get kids thinking.
Question Builder for iPad is $5.99 and is by Mobile Education. Mobile Education has several more apps that fit in this category also. The app includes an evaluation that can be used by a teacher to review the students progress. There are different levels and it can be used for more than one student (also a plus for schools).
I love this type of app, though I have a hard time bringing myself to pay $5.99, I think an app can be worth it. This app rates in that category and I recommend it for kids working on language skills. Check out this app and the others by Mobile Education. Even though my little one is only three I think this app will really help his comprehension. We are working on language skills with him and this is an app that I can feel good about him playing with.
