I don't have to have my own version of Erik X. Raj's app Multiple Choice Articulation to know that elementary and middle school boys would love this app. And, face it - most of you have caseloads made up of primarily boys. I'm not being biased, but I was a "listening" carpool mom throughout my children's school careers and while the girls might like it, the boys will love it.
Questions, such as What would you rather have – a rhino horn growing out of your face or a rat tail growing out of your rear-end? Why? and What kind of sandwich would you rather eat - a sandwich that fell on the floor or a sandwich that a fly landed on? Why?, will definitely get your students interested.
This app gives opportunities for numerous repetitions of the target phonemes in structured sentences and spontaneous speech. With over 500 questions, I could see using this for several sessions and know that students would ask to repeat the lessons.
Although designed for articulation, this is a great app for language therapy. Use to practice answering and asking questions and forming sentences. Once students get the hang of it, have them create questions with their science or social studies vocabulary.
Erik gave me an app to give away - see the Rafflecopter below. I no longer work with a traditional caseload so didn't try it, but read rave reviews at many, many speech blogs.
