Shake-a-Phrase is a fun app for students to get story starters, identify parts of speech, and learn new vocabulary. There are three parts to the app Shake It!, Story Starter, and Quiz Me!. Shake It! is a random sentence generator with definitions provided. There are five themes: animals, fairytale, monsters, sports, and shake starter. The shake starter (story starter) provides ideas of how to begin a narrative. Favorites can be saved to a list. Options in the quiz area let you select from 1 to 5 parts of speech you want to practice: nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions, conjunctions. Students are asked to find these parts in sentences. Correct answers are rewarded, but incorrect answers are not tracked.
I recommend this app for classroom and home use for students functioning in the upper elementary to middle school range. This app would also be good to fill in the last few minutes of the therapy. I was given this app to review it, but I am receiving nothing for my review.
