PrepositionBuilder™ is designed to help elementary aged children learn the correct use of prepositions and learn how prepositions can change the meaning of a sentence.

During play, the student is presented an image and must drag a preposition to complete a sentence about the image. If the student chooses the wrong answer, the image and sentence change to show the student the proper use of the preposition they chose and how it changes the image. Once a student completes a module, they unlock a short animation that is part of a larger story. They must complete all the modules to see the entire story.

PrepositionBuilder™ offers a rich and fun way for all students to learn proper preposition use.

- Simple and intuitive drag and drop interface to build sentences.
- 9 preposition modules including the 28 most common prepositions
- 300 images to build sentences around
- Record feature allows students to record completed sentences in their own voice
- Recordings can be archived and emailed for later play
- Each student has their own archive page
- Optional correct sentence audio re-enforcement
- Statistics to track individual students progress
- 11 animations for the student to unlock during play. Each animation tells part of a larger story.

Another great app by the Mobile Education Store!

This is a great app and will be quite useful for those children who need help in the area of language and constructing proper sentences in regardings to using the correct prepositions. The app is very easy to use and there are nine different preposition modules available. One great feature is that there is immediate, corrective feedback. If a child answers a question correctly, there is positive reinforcement as the correct answer is stated again. If a child answers incorrectly by not choosing the proper preposition to be in the given sentence, then the image under the sentence is actually changed to represent the sentence using the incorrect preposition that the child has just chosen. This is very brief, but is great because it shows the child why his or her answer was not correct and how it affects the meaning of the sentence. Several profiles can be stored in app so that more than one child can use the app. In addition, the data in the profiles can be saved for the student(s) and reports can be formed with the data in order to track the progress of the student. Great app to use for language skills!

Awesome app for kids with autism

Preposition Builder makes use of errorless teaching and applied behavior analysis methodologies to teach and evaluate understanding of prepositions. Like other Mobile Education Store apps, Preposition Builder can keep track of progress of multiple students in a class. Prior to starting an exercise, the teacher (or student!) can choose which prepositions are being evaluated, and whether or not to record the student’s voice reading each sentence. A series of short story animations can be unlocked with each completed section. This provides incentive for students to complete the exercises so that they can find out how the story ends.

To provide documentation of student progress, Preposition Builder allows reports to be emailed to students or teachers. My only recommendation for future updates to this program would be the ability to email progress reports for ALL students (or perhaps an option to print?). Depending on the number of students in a class, it can become tedious sending individual records for each student.

Use for Son with Special Needs

A great app! Pictures are clear, colorful, and engaging. Sounds and speaking are clear and well-pronounced. I like the fact that when a wrong answer is given we don't just hear "sorry, that's wrong," or "no, try again," or "that's close, you're almost there." The picture actually changes to show how the wrong word changes the meaning of the sentence entirely. My son caught on quickly and enjoys using it. It's a game to him, but he's learning and doesn't realize it. One addition I would recommend that may make the app able to be used a little more independently would be when a picture comes up, before the word choices come up on the screen, the voice would ask a question for which the sentence being constructed would be an appropriate answer. For example, the screen with the sentence, "The boy is putting the cereal _______ the bowl," the initial spoken question might be "What is the boy doing with the cereal?" or " What is the boy doing?" Love this app...good work Mobile Educaiton Store!
