Articulation Vacation {app review}

I love the beach and vacation and everything to do with that.  I was thrilled to find out this was a theme for one of Virtual Speech Center's apps!  

First, enter your students' information in.  Once you add their names, you can select the phonemes.

Once you select the phonemes, you will also select the level that the students are working at.  Your choices are word, sentence, or paragraph.

The students will work their way through five different games:

  • fishing- fish and catch objects with the target sounds
  • beach treasure hunt- look for hidden objects in the sand
  • picture-taking- take pictures of objects with target sounds
  • parachute game- land parachutes of objects with target sounds
  • postcards- read or listen to paragraphs with words with target sounds

You can record data as they work their way through the activity.  You can also add extra information in the notes section.

You can change the settings as needed.

At the end, you can view reports of the students' work and progress.

Overall, my students really enjoy this app.  The vacation theme and games are fun and motivating for them. I really appreciate the multi-player option, as well as the ability to select multiple target phonemes for each student.  The data collection and reports helps this busy school SLP.

If you like this app, you can find it in the app store for $22.99 at the time of this review.

P.S. Check out my review of this app on Yapp Guru!
