“Talk Like a Pirate Day” Apps

Ahoy, mateys! I be writin’ a blog message fer ye ’bout apps to use on Speak Like a Scurvy Pirate Day! (Translation: Oh boy, who the heck convinced me to do this?!) Kookoo bananas Bill Binko ‘o LessonPix shanghai’d a few ‘o us bloggers to do pirate-themed posts to celebrate ’tis “holiday,” so here’s me best spin on it. (Thanks postlikeapirate.com for the goofy pirate talk translations.) This post is a bit different than my usual, but I’m hoping it’ll give y’all some fun ideas for Talk Like a Pirate Day on 9/19! If you’re one of those scoundrel SLPs that loves to get kids hyped up then send them on their way, this post (and holiday in general) is for you! I’m going to discuss three apps: one new (to me) pirate-themed one and two that I’ve already reviewed but am adding a “pirate twist” to. Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions or other pirate-themed ideas!

WH Question Cards – Pro

I am VERY excited to be reviewing this new Super Duper app that was just released last week! I’ve long used Super Duper’s flashcards for wh questions (both app and card versions), but this app is a totally different level of interaction! Also, you may have noticed I’ve been adding a few extra details to my blog lately (OS, Version, etc). Another addition I’ll be making is to provide the link directly to the app, either to iTunes or the app’s site, depending on what I think will be most useful. I hope this helps avoid any confusion about which app I’m reviewing as well as increases the ease of use of this site for you wonderful readers. 🙂 Enjoy!

App: WH Question Cards–Pro

What It Is: A collection of interactive games addressing wh questions by Super Duper.
