This is a supplement to “Appy Hours 4 You” Blog Talk Radio Show: Episode 4 – “Words 4 Students”. In this episode, we discussed up front how mad lib-like apps could be used instructionally with various content areas and grade levels and then discussed the main features of each app and what features were available as in-app purchases. (Also check out Teachervision for some great integration ideas.)
We also congratulated Ms. Carnazzo, a 2nd grade teacher in NEISD, for using our show to inspire and develop iLessons with her students: Talking Heads sums of 10 (from episode 1), Songify for short vowel sounds (from episode 1), and iCardSort for objects in motion (from episode 5).
This week we discussed the following free apps:
- Mad Libs (Website): Other paid versions: Goofy, Cool, and On the Road. They also have Musical Mad Libs Songatron Free & Songatron $ which we haven’t had a chance to review.
- Tacky Wales: Also check out the paid app Tacky Wales Create.
- Wordventure (Website)
- Radlibz $
- Sparklefish (Twitter): Stay tuned for a holiday version.
