Tried It Tuesday - Grammaropolis App

Yes!  I am hooking up again this week with Holly's Tried It Tuesday Linky!
I'm also linking up with Christy at Teaching Tales Along the Yellow Brick Road for her Classroom "App"lications Linky.
Last week I introduced common and proper nouns to my third graders. 
This week we are working on verbs.
Luckily I found an App to use in small groups that reviews both of these grammar concepts.
The App is called Grammaropolis, there is also an online website with similar games.
The App includes a short tutorial along with a video and quiz. While it begins with common and proper nouns, it also gets into concrete and abstract nouns, so would work best for third grade and up.
It is very easy for students to use.
The videos are jazzy enough for kids to really get into them.
Check out other great ideas on Holly's blog!
Also, again this week I am helping out Table Talk with C&C with their Best Selling Writing Activity Linky - you could win LOTS of great writing activities!



  1. I really need to check this out and pinned it to add to the iPads later. Thanks so much for sharing, Jane! :)

  2. It's been a hectic week so I'm just getting a chance to check out your app! Thank you so much for linking up!! I have to do a software evaluation for one of the graduate classes I'm in; being an ELA teacher this app definitely peaked my interest, so I think I may be looking into that app more!

    Have a wonderful week!
