Preposition Remix App Review & Giveaway!

APPy Saturday! I hope you all had a great week and are ready for a great Easter weekend with your loved ones! Recently, the creative people from Smarty Ears contacted me about doing an app review on their app,  Preposition Remix. I seem to always have at least one student working on prepositions on my caseload so I was very excited about a new way to work on this skill. 
Smarty Ears did provide me with a free copy of the app, however, all opinions expressed in this review are mine. 
To get started, first add and/or choose a player! This app allows for one player to use the app at a time. 
You are also able to choose settings based on individual need for the student you are working with. If you are currently only targeting the prepositions: inside & outside, you can simply choose those two from the list. 
Once you are ready to start, hit Go! The student is shown a picture and given an auditory prepositional prompt. He/she is to touch the correct item described. 
"Touch the object to the right of the basket."

Once the students has completed the desired number of targets, you can view their report card. This report card can be shared and emailed to parents and/or teachers!
I love that this app allows you to choose individual settings for the student you are working with. In addition to choosing what prepositions you want to target, I like that you can choose how the app reacts to a wrong answer. If I am using this app as an informal assessment/ progress monitoring tool, I don't want the app to make a buzzing noise, just move on to the next prompt!
I also love that the app keeps track of the student's data and allows you to share report cards!
As a private therapist, the single player feature is perfect for me. However, this is not always the best option for a school based therapist that often works with more than once child at a time. 
Preposition Remix currently sells for $9.99. You can download a copy of this app in the iTunes store here.
Feeling lucky? The wonderful people from Smarty Ears kindly offered a second app code so I could share this app with one of you! Enter below for a chance to win a copy of Preposition Remix!

  4. I really like the smarty ears apps. They are always helpful and don't cost an arm and a leg. I would like to see more apps for older kids, though.

  6. This looks great and I know a handful of kids that this would be perfect for. I love that this app keeps track of data...makes the sessions so much easier when I don't have to be writing and tracking data the whole time.
