Question Builder – fun reading and scene comprehension games.

I really like this one.

The have a question at the top, a picture at the bottom that describes a scene, and multiple choice answers in the middle.

For any given picture, there are a variety of questions that your child can be asked.  They have “how” (how is the cart attached to the horse?), “what”, “where” and “why” questions (that you can choose to focus on, or choose from randomly).  There are 3 different levels of difficulty for the questions.  You can have the questions/answers read to the child too, if they need help with reading. And there are cute little celebrations to reward your child with.

Overall, it is a fun way to get your child to think about a scene, to comprehend what the question is asking, and to analyze each of the possible answers and choose the best possible one.  They actually keep stats on your child’s performance so you can see if there are particular areas that they are strong in, or particular areas that they might need more practice with.

It’s a great app to use together too – because you can talk about the different answers and what makes good answers and less good answers.  (Even though wheels are round, that’s not really why the cart has wheels – picking up that subtle difference between the accurate statement vs useful statement, is something that will help children’s communication skills in the long run.)

Overall, we really enjoy this app and it is a great way to spend time together, or for your child to use on their own during some quiet time.  That is, if you keep the celebration volume to a minimum!
