[prMac.com] Sacramento, California - On January 14, 2011, iHomeEducator released iLiveGrammar Winter 4.0 - an educational grammar and science app which includes a large collection of stunning winter photography images.
Arlene Lee, home educator and Chief Mom explains, "We recently took the kids to play in the snow - a first for our family and they absolutely loved it! As we drove up to the mountains, they were fascinated to see the snow-laden trees and the change in scenery. As we study grammar and science, our daily lives become teaching opportunities for children and an inspiration for this new app."
The four lessons include:
Lesson 1: Nouns and Verbs
Lesson 2: Adjectives and Adverbs
Lesson 3: Prepositions, Conjunctions, and Nouns
Lesson 4: Review
iLiveGrammar randomly displays a sentence with a word highlighted.
* Sentences are associated with pictures where a specific word or words are highlighted.
* Pick from the scrolling picker: noun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, etc. which is associated to the highlighted word(s).
* The sentence and answers are tracked for record keeping and can be emailed and blogged.
* Reports have been enhanced to highlight the word(s) in yellow, the Correct Answer is highlighted in green and the Incorrect Answer is highlighted in red.
* Related science and grammar videos are linked in as an incentive for the students
Using the Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter the teacher can control the app as well as display the sentence and photograph on an external projector. The Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter is supported by the iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod touch (4th generation). All iLiveGrammar apps ported to 4.0 will support this new adapter.
