Ease of play

Very easy to play, with a well-organized user interface built around tapping. Kids must be able to read brief instructions or have instructions read to them to play the Quick Check quiz.

What's it about?

GRAMMAR JAMMERS PRIMARY EDITION uses fun animations and rhythmic songs to help new and emerging readers learn adjectives, contractions, nouns, pronouns, punctuation, sentences, and verbs. Kids tap a topic to watch a brief animation and listen to a song related to that topic. (When they learn about contractions, for example, little bunnies hop and bump apostrophes into words as fun banjo music plays.) Kids can then play the Quick Check quiz to reinforce what they've learned.

Is it any good?


If your kid is struggling to learn basic parts of speech or finds this topic intimidating at school, Grammar Jammers Primary Edition could be an excellent way to ease her into grammar. Fun songs, animated characters, colorful images, and simple words displayed on the screen keep the lessons light and pressure-free. The Quick Check quiz activity at the end of each song is also a low-stress way to find out if kids have understood what they've learned. Answer incorrectly, and the correct answer is immediately highlighted in green. Grammar Jammers Primary Edition is a short, sweet, and sometimes funny way to introduce kids to basic grammar definitions.

Families can talk about...

  • If more than one kid is using this app, be sure to reset the quiz scores for accurate results.

Great handpicked alternatives

  • Good intro to parts of speech, but game controls are tricky.
