Graphite Expert Review
Common Sense Graphite Reviewer
The design is nearly flawless, and you can't beat cartoons and audio as an entertaining backdrop for vocabulary quizzes.
Flexibility, the mastered list, and quality definitions are sublime, but the ability to add words (and cartoons) would extend empowerment.
Superior navigation and learning accessibility allows a range of users to focus on content, but you get no performance statistics.
Grade 7 Vocab Audio and Pics is one in a series of highly effective vocabulary-building apps from Lafazi, Inc., that make learning words fun. Quirky cartoons depict each word, and coherent, fully formed audio recordings present "short stories" or usage examples. Through study, flashcard, and multiple-choice quiz modes, tweens can learn 226 middle school-level words such as vicious, legitimate, and harmonious.
In study mode, kids search or scroll for particular words, read the part of speech and definition, enjoy a cartoon, flip the page for usage text, or press the cryptic audio button at the bottom (the triangle) to hear the definition and usage. Flashcard mode shows only the word and part of speech, but kids can tap to see the cartoon as a hint or flip for the definition. Twenty-word quizzes give five definition choices. Correct answers are highlighted in green with a check mark, with incorrect answers in red with an X. Words get separated by students or by quiz results into “mastered” and "don't know" lists.Read More Read Less
Grade 7 Vocab Audio and Pics is so enthralling kids won't want to put it down, which means new vocab words will be grafted onto their brains. The graphics are crisp, navigation is intuitive, and the audio feature is great for kids who struggle with reading or learning disabilities. Entries also feature spot-on definitions and parts of speech, which are sometimes left out of competing products.
Even with all these great features, there's some room for improvement. Cartoons are sometimes a bit off. For example, the word resume shows a team of baseball players standing on a field holding umbrellas during an electrical storm (!), presumably before play resumed (in the future). The usage "short story" explains how this picture relates to the word, but the image doesn't stand alone.Read More Read Less
