Bird on a Wire: Nouns and Verbs iPad App

Part of this month’s word study has been focusing on parts of speech: nouns, verbs, and adjectives.  We have been using a great app on the iPad called Bird on a Wire Bird on a Wire They have three different apps: Verbs, Nouns and Adjectives.

All of them have the same format.  You press start and are given a page of definitions and examples: 2015-2-birds-on-a-wire-verbs  You then click on the ‘games console’ on the bottom menu bar and you are shown three little birds each with a word under their feet.  verbs previewThe learning objective is to identify the verb and click on it.  The little bird flies away with the verb and a ‘Good Job’ sign.

There are perhaps 30 different pages.  At the end, the students can click on the ‘paint palette’ and they are presented with a verb that they can then sketch a picture to match.

The EAL kids were highly motivated by this part.  They did an amazing job of understanding the verbs and then representing that in the form of a digital drawing.  We did the same lesson with Bird on a Wire: Nouns.
