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!
Great For ESL!
Great at testing listening, vocabulary, pronunciation and ability to recall full sentences. My students love this -PLEASE make an expansion or update. They have memorized all of these and I have had to resort to creating my own in writing, but it just isn't the same.
Also, if they could be expanded by level of English I wouldn't have to edit the card list for each class. Great start but I would honestly like to be able to buy these 50 at a time for varying levels.
The potential for this is magnificent. There are not enough cards as is. Great app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
