****I liked everything about this app! My students were engaged with the activities, and it targets all of the prepositions that I need an app to target! I really like that you can target the prepositions either expressively or receptively. The pictures that are used in the expressive activity are clear, and my students enjoyed creating sentences to describe the pictures.(Speech Universe)****
The Prepositions Journey app was developed by a certified speech and language pathologist to aid practice with early/common prepositions. Children will have fun practicing prepositions with three animals who appear in three different colorful, animated scenes: camping, island, and city.
The Prepositions Journey app includes:
•Receptive tasks: Children identify animals in different locations on the scene, for example, “Show me the bunny in the basket.”
•Expressive tasks: Children verbally respond to “where” questions, for example, “Where is the bunny?”
Prepositions covered by this app include:
In, on , under, next to, in front of, behind, in the back, between, above, below, beside, in the middle, outside, out, over, near, far, on the side, on the left, on the right
What's New in Version 1.2.1
Improved “More Apps” page.
This app provides a fun way for students to practice prepositions. The fun characters and scenes provide both receptive and expressive tasks. The therapist can select specific prepositions to focus on. Data tracking can be done within the app and the target can be repeated as many times as necessary. I love using this app with my students who are just learning prepositions.
Kids love it
The pictures could be clearer to determine location. The kids enjoy looking at the different picture scenes. Easy to switch between receptive and expressive versions. Provides me with another tool to teach prepositions/spatial concepts. Data is easily interpreted after session.
I am an SLP who works in a clinical setting as well as in the schools. My students enjoy this app but I believe it needs more customization. It is too repetitious for some of my students. It needs the capacity to be customized with the number of trials for each preposition receptively and expressively. Also, some of the pictures are unclear, even to me.
