Ratings and Reviews
Great for learning!
Bluster! is a great app which I will use in my classroom all the time. It has the option to play single player or dual-player mode. Dual-player mode is awesome. Each person has half of the iPad and they duel it out against the other person on vocabulary and word items (prepositions, rhyming words, etc) for different difficulty levels. Players have to match the words in the bar above and if they are too slow they get a tornado across their boards from the other player. I recommend this to anyone who wants to increase knowledge and understanding of vocabulary.
