This colorful educational App for the iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch® has all 54 illustrated picture flash cards (plus audio for each card) from the What Doesn’t Belong? Fun Deck® by Super Duper® Publications. Select the cards you want your students to see, and have them practice categorizing, classifying, and organizing as they pick out the one that does not belong. Prompts include pictures with three items, such as “an elephant, a lion, and a toaster…” as well as pictures with four items, like “scissors, glue, crayons, and a sailboat…”
This App is simple to use — each student looks at an illustration, and either reads the prompt or touches the screen to listen to the prompt. The student then gives a verbal response. After each answer, tap the green (correct) or red (incorrect) button to score the student’s verbal response. Move to the next card by sliding the card currently on the display screen to the side. To move to the next player, tap the bar at the top of the screen and select a name. You can also advance cards and players automatically by selecting the Auto-Advance option in the Game Options menu. You can leave a game temporarily and return to it later by selecting Pause Game from the menu. To return to the game, select Continue Game from the main menu. When you finish, view the results in a graph, and print or email your data.

Ratings and Reviews
As an elementary school English as a second language teacher, I love Super Duper Fun Decks. Pictures are an indispensable tool for learning language. The pictures in this Fun Deck are a springboard for language production and comprehension. Teachers can use the images in conjunction with a sentence frame in order to structure and extend the students' responses. Sometimes I project the "card" from the iPad onto a screen and we play as a whole group. Other times I use the app to work with a smaller group of students so I can closely monitor their language production and listen to them explain their thinking. In whole group playing, student partners can confer with each other write their answers on a small white board. I award points for the correct answer AND for the partners explaining why they made the answer choice. Either way has the advantage of triggering metacognition as students have to explain their thinking. The teacher can also keep score within the app of the students' correct/incorrect responses. The colorful app keeps the students engaged and learning!
Please make more interactive!
I think others have said this as well, but it would be wonderful if my patients could select the appropriate picture and it not simply repeat the question. I like the opposite app because it reinforces and the child can select the appropriate answer on screen. I use this app and fun decks for my kiddos with severe expressive language difficulties so they can demonstrate receptive language skills without frustration. I feel so bad for them when they push the screen over and over and it just repeats the statement. Can you please update soon so the app can be more interactive! Thank you SuperDuper!
I absolutely LOVE the availability of the Super Duper Fun Decks! It is so much easier to use an iPad vs carrying the tin cans back and forth. PLUS, lost cards are a thing of the past! As a Speech-Language Pathologist I know how to use this deck and am very familiar with it. However, the instruction card in the box should be included within this app as well for those who aren't as familiar with it. I'm sure the ratings would be 5 stars with that one small added detail. All in all it's Super Duper!! 😆
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
