The Opposites App Review

Opposites   This weeks Educational APPtitute review is of The Opposites.

The Opposites is a very simple app that helps with learning Antonyms. It starts easy with words that you click on that are opposites such as “good” and “bad”

 

Opposites1Opposites2Opposites3

The Opposites is great for learning new words and comparing those words with their antonyms.

The Opposites, it seems, would work the best for grades 3-5.

There is a game part to the Opposites, as well as a learning part where you can see dictionary definitions of the words used. This app really helps with not only learning opposites/antonyms, but also helps with learning new words and how to use them appropriately.

You can find The Opposites here for FREE!

This weeks Educational APPtitude review is of Letter School.

LetterSchool

Letter School is a wonderful app for those younger students just learning their alphabet letters. Letter School is primarily for a Pre-School/Kingergarten age student but the app could be used for older students who need the reinforcement.

Most students, when given this app, know exactly what to do. They start with tapping on markers for the letters to be created. Next, it has a tracing activity. And finally, and most difficult, they are to write the letter all by themselves with no help.

This app is $2.99 and worth every penny. It has been awarded numerous commendations and awards for being an excellent learning tool. Letter School works on both iPad and iPhone.
