****What I really like about this app: The depth and scope of this app which allows so many different aspects of vocabulary to be targeted. The ability to add your own words and notes.(Nikki Heyman,SLP)****
****I love the fact that this app addresses many semantic flexibility targets. The wide range of ages and grades makes it easy to adjust and edit vocabulary for the student’s level and needs. The app’s data collection tools are great for tracking goal mastery. (Tatyana Elleseff MA CCC-SLP)****
The Real Vocabulary Pro app is a comprehensive and flexible language program for kindergarten-5th grade students targeting core curriculum vocabulary*.
The Real Vocabulary app includes over 1500 pictures and over 5000 pre-recorded audio. The pro version of the app and the All Words in - app program allow the users to add their own words, pictures and audio recordings, making therapy more individualized and allowing school speech therapists to add their own curriculum based vocabulary.
The Real Vocabulary app offers both receptive and expressive tasks in the following categories:
- Antonyms (Kindergarten – 1st grade, 2nd- 3rd grades, 4th – 5th grades with total of 300 antonyms)
- Synonyms (Kindergarten – 1st grade, 2nd- 3rd grades, 4th – 5th grades with total of 300 synonyms)
- Definitions (Kindergarten – 1st grade, 2nd- 3rd grades, 4th – 5th grades with total of 300 definitions)
- Multiple Meanings (Kindergarten – 1st grade, 2nd- 3rd grades, 4th – 5th grades with total of 300 multiple meanings)
- Idioms (Kindergarten – 1st grade, 2nd- 3rd grades, 4th – 5th grades with total of 300 idioms)
In the receptive task, the picture with word stimulus is displayed and the student matches one of the four words that matches the stimulus. (E.g. what is another word for accurate? A) Happy B) Late C) True D) Correct)
In the expressive task, the picture with word stimulus is displayed and the student states his answer verbally (E.g. what is another word for almost?)
The pro version of the app and the ALL words in- app program include all the above categories however each category can be purchased separately as well. The users can try the free light version of the app with a few examples of each category and activity.
Students will be motivated to learn and practice thousands of words since they will be rewarded with three different games:
-Catch the Dish
The Real Vocabulary app is easy to navigate and allows users to employ several tools to perform the following:
-add additional photos and audio recording
-enter multiple students
-save selected targets for the next session
-select alternate counts for multiple students
-enable or disable written picture descriptions
-enable or disable special effect sounds
-audio record users’ responses
-track correct and incorrect responses
-view reports in table and graphical forms
-e-mail results at the end of the game

What's New in Version 1.2
Minor bug fixes.
This is a great app for working on vocabulary in multiple forms. Students can work on receptive and expressive tasks for the same targets while working to earn games. The targets are read aloud and an image is visible to help students with different needs, while targets are available in different grade levels. Data is easily collected throughout the activities and stored by student. Settings allow for customization of different aspects. Can't wait to explore more of this app with my speech students.
This is a great app. I particularly love that the vocabulary is divided into grade levels aligning with common core. It's also really good that with the full version, vocabulary can be added. Many of my students are bilingual and there are cultural differences in the language and vocabulary. Now I have a way to incorporate culturally-related word into this app and build on the different types of vocab for my students. The only thing I would like is an even further sub-division into discrete grade levels as well as enhancements to add further grade level words to the mix.
This app is great!! I am a speech pathologist and I use this app to build vocabulary skills. It is colorful, fun, and interactive!! The students love it!!
