Ratings and Reviews
I am a retired English teacher, and I recently purchased Smarty Britches: Nouns for my 7 year old grandson Nathan, who is much more interested in tractors and motorcycles than in learning and school. Once I had installed it on my IPad he refused to play it (I wasn't surprised!), so I tested Smarty Britches myself. When he saw how much I enjoyed it he asked to play, and since then he has needed no encouragement to explore it over and over again. He will definitely have a head start on nouns when he enters second grade later this month! I look forward to purchasing future Smarty Britches programs -- anything that makes learning fun for Nathan will be well worth the investment!
The best thing about this app is twofold: interactive engagement and the continuity of learning. The app will help young children to stay actively engaged by learning nouns at their own pace via technology. Moreover, it flows well with the lesson's presentation of nouns, followed by activities that reinforce each aspect of a noun, and finally a review. The activities were my favorite part of the app. The various settings at the beginning of the lesson allow learners the opportunities for further enrichment in reading skills and oral communication skills. A great teaching tool for K-3, effective review for mastery, and very appropriate for ESL students as well! Impressed with the correlation of the app and the Common Core Curriculum.
LOVE this app!
Smarty Britches: Nouns is a beautifully designed app that not only teaches the types of nouns but also teaches cultural literacy about the South and provides free lesson plans for teachers that are cross curricular. It's a Win Win Win storybook app! I definitely recommend this app to other educators and parents.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
