What's on Our iPad? iPractice Verbs

As many of you know, I have a daughter with Apraxia.  We love to review many speech therapy apps to help other kids like Paige & parents like me to know which apps are out there & which apps are helpful.  

iPractice Verbs

From the iTunes store:

iPractice Verbs is an app developed to help children learn and practice basic English verbs in a variety of levels (word, phrase, sentence) and tense forms (present, present progressive & past tense). iPractice Verbs was designed by a licensed and certified Speech-Language Pathologist to serve as a tool for children with language delays and as a tool for children and adults learning English as a second language.

This app contains over 158 regular & irregular verbs in the present, present progressive, and past tense with corresponding high quality images and audio (totaling to over 1000 stimuli). Practicing verbs and verb tenses has never been so easy or intuitive.

::: Features ::::
  • Contains regular and irregular verbs
  • 158 verbs at the word, phrase & sentence level
  • It includes present, present progressive & past tense options
  • Voice recording available
  • Built-in audio for all verbs
  • Compatible with the Therapy Report Center
  • Multi-player
  • Track correct & incorrect response
  • Players are advanced manually to give user flexibility
  • Generate certificates
  • Built-in homework sheets
  • Print, email or export results
  • Built-in reward system with prizes
  • Backup and restore data via iTunes file sharing

iPractice Verbs is one of the many good quality Smarty Ears Apps.  In fact, I think it's Smarty Ear's best kept secret! 

I'll walk you through the app.

When you first start the app, you have 2 options for activities, you can select either the 'flashcard' mode or the 'find it' mode. 

Once you select either, you'll have the option to narrow your selection of verbs to work on. 

The flashcard mode has a lot of variety!  You can pick which tense you'd like, and if you'd like it in a word, phrase or sentence.  In my mind, apps with variety = an app that will grow with my child. 

The find it mode is a multiple choice game.  This activity was designed to help students practice the techniques of listening in a variety of situations (e.g., focusing attention, reflecting, interpreting, analyzing, responding to messages).

I love that they added some extra fun into this app with their power cards.  The power cards will help motivate the child to keep going. 

My favorite part as a parent is that this app has built in homework sheets and certificates... something I have never seen before! 

And because this is such a great app, I'd love to share it with one lucky winner!

  1. I am excited...I hope to win the App. I am always looking for good apps to help my son. I am off to look at their other apps too!

  2. Oops! I forgot to post my favorite app! I really like Articulation!

  3. My child loves the Elmo app.

  4. And my friends love ones like "Uncolor" and "I love Fireworks"

  5. My kids love the Reading Rainbow app with the sound effects added. They also love the fact that the books can be read to them so they can enjoy the colors and the words instead of having to sound out the tough words. Then they can read it to themselves the next time.

  6. Awesome giveaway! Currently we've been doing the Speech with Milo apps but I think we need an app that's a little more grown up. ;)

    1. One of our speech therapists just introduced us to the Milo apps... LOVE THEM!

  7. Toca Boca apps are always a hit with the kiddos I work with.

  8. My son's favourite is thomas and his friends (anna marikar)


I actually really love it when you comment! ;)
