Phrase Stress is an app created by Artel Larson. The app focuses on using idioms. Idioms are a skill that’s so important in the speech room! When it’s time to face the music and get back to school, doing it with new apps is the only way to go. PhraseStress includes 350 idioms. SLPs can select the speed, difficulty and use the app to instruct and practice. The ‘stress’ factor in the name of the app comes from the speed at which your students are working. As your students become for fluent and experienced with the idioms they should be able to complete more questions in the allotted time! Three play options are available. (a) See an Idiom: pick the right explanation. (b) See Idiom Explained: you pick the right idiom (c) Idiom Missing Word: You pick the right word. This is the set up screen for SLPs! My 5th graders are uber competitive, so having their name on the leader board is very exciting! Artel Larson is excited to give SLPs 3 copies of this app!

In graduate school right now and I don’t start clinical until next semester, but I have already started collecting apps and activities!
Elizabeth Kreichelt says
Sounds like a fun game!would love to have it as a new slp!!
Jenni Lund says
I work on idioms through stories and conversations.
I’ve been working with younger students so I haven’t been working on idioms at all. But this year I also have the older students, so this would be really helpful!
Alice Wong says
I work on idioms with flash cards and novels.
I have worked on idioms through stories and visuals
Chelsi Leigh says
This looks fun!
Marty, Rhenda and Anna says
I like to integrate idioms when I’m working on vocabulary in a specific theme (body parts, food, etc) This looks like a fun app to use!
We do a daily idiom on the board and then review them at the end of the month.
I would love to use this! In fact, I want to use it so much that I went to buy it tonight from the app store and I don’t see it. When will it be available? Thanks!
Jenna Rayburn says
Kris. Click on the first two words in the post (PhraseStress). It’s the direct link to the iTunes store to purchase
I have a book with visuals that I made and also through conversations.
Great way to work on idioms for me is through literature, picture books and beyond!
Steven and Rachel says
I use a combination of worksheets and literature based activities. This app looks great!
I work on idioms with stories and in conversation. It’s important to remember that idioms follow pop culture so we need to continually update our collection as well as teach the oldies but goodies that are still used. This app looks great for that. Thx for chance to win.
I hope I get this 🙂 Thank you so much for the chance!
I use idiom cards and games and have a story made by a 4th grade class that illustrates idioms.
Rachel Jones says
I like to use idioms in short stories. After we read the story, we go back and identify the idioms, and talk about other words the author could have used in place of the idiom (so basically their meaning, etc.)

I use silly pictures that illustrate the idiom and try to give lots of examples of hoe people use the idioms in everyday life.
Rebecca Jacobs says
I have a hard time working on idioms. I use pictures, use the idioms in the context of a story, explain and give examples.
I have a middle school group that does an ‘Idiom of the Week’ for the whole school during Thursday announcements. They come to me on Wednesday to develop a script. They are required to state the idioms in their own words, give a fictitious example, and then give an example where students could use the idiom in school. It’s been great!
Melissa C. says
This will be a great tool for so many students! Thanks for the chance!
I’m also an elemntary SLP..would love this! :0)
I currently use a super duper fun deck to work on idioms. I also have kids draw the literal meaning and then draw the actual meaning of a given idiom.
I have idiom playing cards that we use (mostly War). We also draw comics/pictures of the idiom and practice using it correctly in sentences.
I use visuals to teach
Kelley Jones says
I use the Idioms fun deck most of the time. 🙂
My students would love to use this app!
I would love to share this with my students so they can use more technology (and be attentive!)!!
Queen Flip Flop says
Looks like fun…always looking for new apps.
Melissa Philippsen says
My students love to use my idioms dictionary from Scholastic-it provides the meaning, origin and an exaple! This looks like an awesome App!
I use pictures to discuss idioms, but this app looks awesome!
This app looks like fun for my students!
Looks great.. I usually do worksheets or use the book Fly Guy
Carrie Walls says
I use flashcards first, then real life examples or examples from books. I
I use visuals, stories, and act out real life istuations where people might use them.
