The award-winning Grammar Girl presents Grammar Pop: A fun word game for adults and a great way for kids to learn parts of speech. Match words with parts-of-speech, pop clouds, and progress from nouns and verbs to gerunds and participles.
The sentences get longer, the parts of speech get harder, and the timer gets shorter as you pop more clouds and advance through the game. You won’t even know you’re learning!

Ratings and Reviews

How great is Grammar Pop? It's like Angry Birds for literate people. Awesome way to 'parse' the time.
One of the only tools I've used that teaches the real difference between participles and gerunds.
Shows promise but not worth $2.50.
As a game it gets boring very quickly, but it is enjoyable enough way to drill grammar concepts.
Sounds need to be adjustable (voices and pops are cute for about 3 levels).
Coins are annoying. What are they for?
Timer needs to pause between sentences. The delay between sentences needs to be reduced as well (the sliding-clouds effect grows old quickly).
I will use it to drill concepts but it is not "fun".... But I have seen worse and I have a funny feeling it will get a lot better.
