The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The learning portion of the app is simple to navigate. It acts like a book with pages to swipe. The game portion of the app has no instructions, and it is difficult to maneuver the planes and helicopters.

Violence & Scariness

The game ends when two airborne vehicles crash.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Grammar Games is an educational lesson and an educational game combined to teach kids about the parts of speech. Kids can read basic instruction about grammar with many examples, some of them visual, and then play the grammar game. In the game, kids sort words into parts of speech by helping planes and helicopters land on the proper runways or helipads. Kids can choose from three different pairings of two parts of speech, or all four of the ones in the game (noun, adjective, verb, and adverb). When two airborne vehicles crash, the game is over and the score is given.

Is it any good?

GRAMMAR GAMES is a good review of parts of speech for older kids or a gentle introduction for younger kids. It is not thorough enough to be complete instruction. All the parts of speech are introduced, but the app doesn't include all the explanatory information for each. Also, a few of the methods can be confusing, such as capitalizing some of the common nouns. For the game, it is difficult to maneuver the planes and helicopters so that they actually land. There seems to be a trick to it that is a challenge to get.
