Alex's New Favorite iPad App: The Grading Game




Song:  North Star

Artist:  Helen Jane Long



The Grading Game...
Alex's new favorite iPad game.



In it... 
one must spot, and correct, various Spelling, Grammar, Punctuation...
and Capitalization errors.

The papers to correct get more complex as one advances.






Alex loves spotting and correcting things in his daily life...
so this game is a natural one for him.

He also wishes to, one day, become a University Professor.
To love correcting papers will be a big advantage...
for he shall be doing much of it, should he become one.




The value of this game lies in its strengthening of error recognition.
Once a child may spot the errors here...
he may spot them in his own usage.

Just as in other video games...
it is in its use of Positive Reinforcement 
which provides the addictive factor.

Alex loves learning through various means.

While much of his learning still comes from on-line programs
(supplementary and advanced studies at home)...
the iPad has useful apps (such as this one)...
where learning is not only fully portable...
but thoroughly enjoyable.

Having a learning program which the child finds fun and interesting...
while he learns important fundamentals in various subjects...
is a smart buy for the parents...
and a smart use of time for the child.


While the partial app is free...
for the full function game...
it still only costs a couple of dollars.

It is well worth the cost.
