In WordQuations students actively engage in the learning process to understand synonyms for verbs. Telling a student to find a better word in the Thesaurus often results in completely inappropriate word choices for them while writing. This app uses a formula to deconstruct verb synonyms like plod, scamper, slink and meander and breaks down the features of each word. The formula we share with students in this app is amazingly powerful! In one mode, this app will help students better understand character motives and emotions. In another mode, students can find appropriate verbs to be used in their writing by inputting their character’s emotion or motive. Engaging visuals and video footage performed by The Simpletons for each verb make this a must have for middle and high school students!
