Prep Positions {app review}

Do you love the circus or circus-themed items?  Then this app is for you!  Smarty Ears recently released a new app called Prep Positions, and it has a fun and motivating circus theme.  It targets prepositions!

First up, set up your player profiles.  Once you do that, you will see a screen where you can select the level for that student. 

Click on "modify" on the screen above, and you will be taken to this screen below.  There are 15 different levels, and this screen allows you to see the prepositions targeted on each level. 

Once you select the appropriate level, the activity will start.  The students will be presented a picture, a sentence with a blank, and three options to fill in the blank.  Simply drag the correct answer to the blank. 

Once they select the correct answer, this screen below will appear.  The student is then prompted to read the sentence they created out loud. 

As the students complete the activity, they will  earn balls to be used in the game.  The app will tell them how many balls they earned and how many they have total. 

These balls can be used to play a cannon ball game.

 Once the student is done with the preposition activity and the game, you can view the results.

You can view the reports by level, by session, or by preposition.

Overall, this is a great app to target prepositions.  It allows for multiple players to use the app at the same time.  You can customize it for each of those students as well. In fact, there are 15 different levels of play! This app allows for a lot of practice.  It is easy to use but is also fun and motivating for the students! Finally, this app aligns with the Common Core.  

You can read more about the app on the Smarty Ears website.  If you are interested in purchasing this app, you can find it in the app store for $19.99 at the time of this review.
