Our Rating

Thanks to Hamaguchi Apps we have 5 codes to giveaway for Talk About It Objects (Home Edition.) You can read Suzannes review below.

This app helps teach students how to describe objects by teaching them what information is important when describing an object. It is designed for 6-12 year olds.

A photo of an object is presented in the Guess Box and the child can read or listen to four sentences and find the one that tells the most specific and important information about the object.

If the choice is wrong, an x is marked and the child continues to find the correct sentence. Incorrect sentences are usually true statements but they give unimportant or vague information. If the correct sentence is chosen, the statement is moved behind the curtain of the Talk About It Box and four more choices are presented until a pre-set number of details is found. The program can be set up to find 3 (default), 5 or 7 details per object.

Once all the correct statements have been chosen, the child will have a chance to review them and practice recalling them verbally using the recording feature. When the record button is pushed, the curtain closes to hide the details but the child can touch the clue buttons for help. When the recording is stopped, the curtain opens and you can check the child’s recording against the statements and score accordingly. A recording feature always does wonders for students’ expressive language development.

There are many customization options available in the settings. The objects presented can be random or you can choose categories (animals, clothing and accessories, foods, household items, jewelry, musical instruments, places, vehicles, miscellaneous) or specific items. You can choose 3, 5 or 7 facts for each object. You can also decide to turn on or off the following items – guess boxes, feedback for incorrect answers, recording feature, hints, progress tracker and score display. There are three reward games that can be played after every 1, 3 or 5 objects or not play. Just a warning that kids can play the game over and over and not return to the Guess Box activity, if given a chance.

The pro version allows for 30 users versus one user for the home version. I would like to be able to select my own objects, save my settings automatically so I don’t have to set up every time and to be able to print all sessions for one student on one report instead of each session separately.

Talk About It Objects is a wonderful therapy tool that allows for much discussion and elaboration when used with an adult. This is a very difficult task for students with language delays. I love this app for some of my older elementary students who can label/name objects but need to learn describing skills! There are very few apps for these students with in between skills and this app fills a gap in targeted skills!
