Verbs News is a fun and creative language-therapy app for the iPad created by a certified speech and language pathologist for students to learn and practice verbs in four different tenses (simple present, present continuous, simple past, and simple future). It has a total of over 190 regular and irregular verbs represented in beautiful real-life pictures.
Children are welcomed by a boy named Andrew, who is a newsroom anchor. Andrew has his own channel, “Intro to Tenses,” in which children can watch four different animated movies that visually explain four different English tenses. After they watch “Intro to Tenses,” they may begin to practice the verbs. For each correct response, the children are awarded with an anchor microphone. At the end of the session, children can take the role of an anchor, record their own news, and watch it in the newsroom. (The video recordings are not saved in this app to comply with HIPPA.*)
