Grammar Pop HD
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The award-winning Grammar Girl presents Grammar Pop: A fun word game for adults and a great way for kids to learn parts of speech. Match words with parts-of-speech to pop clouds and progress from nouns and verbs to gerunds and participles.
The sentences get longer, the parts of speech get harder, and the timer gets shorter as you pop more clouds and advance through Grammar Pop. You won’t even know you’re learning!
Grammar Girl has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show as a grammar expert, is a regular radio guest, and has been featured in Business Week, the New York Times, CNN, Reader’s Digest, the Washington Post, and USA Today. She has written seven books on grammar, including Grammar Girl Presents The Ultimate Writing Guide for Students, which is used in many classrooms and has been offered through Scholastic book fairs.
Many of the game sentences use commonly confused words and model “Conventions of Standard English” requirements of the Common Core standards.
Grammar Pop does not support the iPad 1.

What's New in Version 1.2
Updates to improve game stability in iOS 7.
Fun for pedants
An easy to master game that uses colour to help the player distinguish the parts of speech. Invaluable to have read the choices that were made about contentious issues, like verbs including auxiliary and modal verbs, before starting to play. Well worth a try.
I love it. Great for practising what I have learned. It is multi level, so I can play with my high school sons as well!
