Sequencing Post Office is an app for students ages 3 and up. It includes 65 pictures sequences in 2-4 parts.
Sequencing involves putting objects and events in logical order, and it is an important language skill for storytelling, reading comprehension, following directions, and executive functioning.
At the top of each sequencing activity, choose 2, 3, or 4 parts to sequence. I felt the sequences chosen in the app were appropriate for the age targeted. I like choosing the difficulty right on the page. If my student struggles with 4 steps, I can reduce the difficulty down to 3 steps and then increase the difficulty from there.
I’m happy that the sequencing activity doesn’t automatically move to the next page. Similar apps automatically move on. I like the ability to stop and expressively describe the sequence. This allows a lot more language opportunities.
The images and sequences targeted are really good. I love the variety. They are different from many of the similar cards/apps I have.
The app does not allow a student to correct their work. This is a major drawback. You can edit up until all 3 are added. Once you set the 4th card into place no more edits can be made.
The reward game isn’t much entertainment for younger students. I played it myself 6 times and never won above ‘100 points’ (one correct answer in a row). There are letter dropping from the sky. You can earn points my matching the kind of mail you need. There were too many type of mail falling and the ‘target’ type didn’t change fast enough. It was disappointing and I plan to disable it for all future clients. You can select how long the students will play the game which in a nice feature.
Overall, the app seems really useful for a variety of language skills. I look forward to future updates that I hope include the ability to re-try a sequence and and an improved reward game.
You can find the game for sale in the iTunes store for $4.99, a great price for this app.
I was provided with a copy of this app for review, no other compensation was provided and the opinions expressed are mine alone.
