Verbs News is a fun and creative language-therapy app for the iPad created
by a certified speech and language pathologist for students to learn and practice
verbs in four different tenses (simple present, present continuous, simple past,
and simple future). It has a total of over 190 regular and irregular verbs represented
in beautiful real-life pictures.
Children are welcomed by a boy named Andrew, who is a newsroom anchor. Andrew has
his own channel, “Intro to Tenses,” in which children can watch four different animated
movies that visually explain four different English tenses. After they watch “Intro
to Tenses,” they may begin to practice the verbs. For each correct response, the
children are awarded with an anchor microphone. At the end of the session, children
can take the role of an anchor, record their own news, and watch it in the newsroom.
