Description

The grammar dragon has captured all of your friends from the castle. You must rescue a different person on each level by correctly identifying various parts of speech.

Grammar Dragon is a learning game where the player uses parts of speech to develop cognitive reading and verbal skills. The touch mechanic of the game engages children in a hands-on learning process, implementing kinesthetic learning. The game also incorporates words and sentence structure to the particular grade level, based upon excerpts from grade-appropriate reading materials.

Grammar dragon

I really like the game and think that it is a great game. However,when I try to open the information window within the game it comes up as a blank white screen. This makes the game impossible to exit or pause until it times out. If that were fixed I would give it five stars.

Not enough time

I like the game, but can you make it so there is an untimed option? My students need more time to figure out the correct answer.

Horrible sentences

Blackberry123

The set up of this game is very attractive. However sentences such as, "Tamera never smokes cigarettes.", " Jaguars hang their kills in trees.", "Sam was guilty by association." and " Isaiah carefully draped plastic over the exposed black mold." just do not seem appropriate for 9-10 year olds. I was very disappointed and promptly deleted the app.
