If I had a dollar every time I wrote an IEP goal for answering WH questions, I’d be able to get guacamole on my Chipotle order every time without worrying about the budget. And maybe even chips. That’s why it isn’t surprising to see another WH questions app pop on the market. Virtual Speech Center offered me the chance to try out their new app called Questions Hunt.
The app uses hidden question marks in different scenes, such as beaches, parks, stores, campgrounds, airports and schools.
Set up student profiles and then select which WH question scene you want to use. Select which specific type of questions to include.
The Questions Hunt app includes both receptive and expressive tasks that integrate 60 yes/no questions and 360 WH questions. In receptive tasks, children listen to questions and answer multiple choice questions by tapping an answer choice. In expressive tasks, children answer questions verbally.
The receptive and expressive tasks are both used in the same set, just tap the receptive/expressive button at the top of the page.
To navigate to more questions in the app just slide your finger to move over and around the scene.
Any area that has a question mark is an opportunity to practice.
The app takes data and can be used for several students at the same time. It retails for $9.99 in iTunes.
Pros: The app feels like ‘virtual reality’ which students will enjoy. I like that there is one topic with many different questions. It’s also a great way to work on vocabulary. For example in the airport scene you will need to know words like pilot, travel, suitcase, and stewardess.
Cons: If you select more than one scene at one time, you can’t navigate to different scenes until you finish one. I think it would be better to just select one of the scenes.
This app was provided by VSC, no other compensation was provided, an the opinion here are all mine.

I also write TONS of WH-question goals. I’m always looking for new ways to target them. Thanks for the review!
Great post. Thanks for sharing the review.
Is this for older children?
Did you use this with your preschool students?
Thanks very much for the review. I have a number of the apps from the Virtual Speech Center and they are usually pretty good!
